I'm glad of the umbriferousness of our parasol, attached to our garden table. It's a bit like umbrella, that word isn't it?
It is, Suzy. They must be connected, surely?
Beautiful - as long as you don't break an ankle, when the umbriferous trees would hide you from any rescuing helicopter.
They would, Lizy. Best tread carefully.
Nice word that rolls off the tongue.
It does, Oscar.
What a fabulous word, Patsy. And Lydford Gorge one of my favourite places. Grew up in Plymouth & we spent many a Sunday afternoon walking through here :)
I've only been once, Tracy. I'd like to go again and see it in other seasons.
...from the Latin word Umbra for shade - I wish I had learned Latin - how many words we use originate from one simple Latin word!
I only know a few latin words, Janet - those connected with plants and Naval mottos.
Have never used the word but did know the Latin root! Love that photo.
I didn't know either, Rosemary.
I know you make up words...
You can't prove that, Mac.
That looks really peaceful...
It was, Alex - except by the bigger waterfalls.
Lovely word! Never even knew it existed. Thanks for sharing it with us. :)
I keep wondering what I might be forgetting each time I learn something new, Linda.
There are so many beautiful words in our language that never get used in ordinary conversation (not by me anyway). And if I were to write them they would sound contrived. I'm sure there is an umbrella link there though.
Some words deserve to be used more though, don't they, Maggie?
Aaah... looks so cool and calm. :-)
It's a relaxing place, Misha.
That's a new one for me!
I hope you'll find a use for it, Beverly.
Gorgeous word for a gorgeous photo x
They do go well together, don't they, Sue?
