Let's Open Up the Dictionary, Shall We?


What shall we post today? I have a backup of images since so many plants are in full bloom right now.

I know, let’s post a cresting cactus without flowers.

Myrtillocactus geometrizans crest

I wonder what the difference between flowers and blooms are, since I use the words interchangeably.

Let’s look it up!

OK, so it seems that they can be used as synonyms, or if you prefer the flower includes both the unopen bud phase and the open bloom phase. Huzzah!
