310315 Precocious, Moi?

By March 31, 2015zBlog Archives

My parents always said I was a “precocious” child, but I now discover that the word can also be used for plants, as it means: ”Of a plant: flowering, fruiting, etc., unusually early; spec. producing flowers before the leaves are developed. Also: (of flowers or fruit) appearing or produced unusually early; (of flowering or fruiting) occurring unusually early.’ (OED). I think we can safely say that these geraniums are precocious.

Day #90 of the second 365 project, where the daily pic is informed by the OED word of the day.
