Hello and welcome to a new monthly feature here on our blog!
Every month we will share a unique word – perhaps a lesser known one, perhaps a long forgotten one, perhaps one borrowed from another language. We hope you will enjoy this feature and will maybe even add a new word here and there to your repertoire. Let’s get to our first word…
Sometimes, it can seem like we wait and wait for the arrival of spring and then all of the sudden it’s here. Not when the calendar says it’s spring but when early spring flowers bloom by the roadsides, things are looking greener, and migrating birds begin to return.
Another sure sign that spring is in full swing is when leaves start popping out. Frondescence is the term for this: the process, state, or period of putting forth leaves; the unfolding of leaves; foliage. There’s certainly plenty popping out around the library!
Do you have an interesting word to share? Pop it in the comments. You might see it as one of our monthly features.
