Evince

Evince means to reveal the presence of a quality or feeling, or to make clear and plain. I believe this photo of our front garden evinces my love of flowers.

Evincing is also a word, evinced by its presence in my dictionary.

Hi Patsy - I must congratulate you on your border ... looks amazing and I am evinced by it! Cheers Hilary

Christine Howe said...

The photo evinces the fact that you have green fingers. I'm convinced that is evinced.

Leandra Wallace said...

This is a new word to me! And gorgeous flowers. I just can't seem to keep anything well-watered...

Crystal Collier said...

Haven't heard that one. Beautiful flowers!

Wonderful word - never heard of it before. Wonderful garden too - wish mine looked liked that!

Nicola said...

Great word but I think I would be too afraid to use it. Maybe more examples necessary :) Hope you are having a great week.

Chrys Fey said...

I've never used the word "evince" in my writing before but now I want to. :)

Patsy said...

We've had a few more than usual this year, Mac. (Haven't heard them called that in years!)

Patsy said...

Thanks, Hilary. That was taken in the spring, but it's not bad now.

Patsy said...

Gardening is one of my enthusiasms, Christine.

Patsy said...

I garden in England, Leandra - watering isn't a problem for most of the year.

Patsy said...

It's not a word I've used in anger, Crystal.

Patsy said...

I spend my time there when I should be writing.

Patsy said...

Not sure I'll use it either, Nicola - but sometimes I surprise myself.

Patsy said...

Hope you fit it in somewhere, Chrys.

Nick Wilford said...

That's a word that isn't used enough! I know you've posted about loads more contests since then, but I've got a story idea together for the Commonwealth Prize you posted about last month. Now I merely need to write it before the deadline.

No more evincing evidence than the photograph.

Maggie May said...

What a fabulous front garden. Beautiful!

There's a nice ring to the word "evince" but can't say I've heard it used much recently. Maybe you will be leading a revival, Patsy.

Patsy said...

Glad you're evinced of that, Oscar!

Patsy said...

Thanks, Maggie.

Patsy said...

Maybe - there are other words even more worthy of a revival though, I think.

'Con'-vince is also a word. I am convinced that you are a lot more green-fingered than me, Patsy!

Can't stop looking at your beautiful garden - bursting with colour xx

Patsy said...

I've always liked gardening, Helen.

Patsy said...

It's not unknown for people walking by to stop and have a look, Teresa.

Patsy said...

Good luck, Nick!
