Bosky

Bosky means wooded or bushy. One multistemmed tree would be slightly bosky, a dozen would be boskier and a whole forest is the boskiest of all.

Where's your favourite bosky place?

This had me reaching for my Chambers to see if bosky is a real word - and, of course, it is. I love it and shall try to drop it into conversation at some point today. I also like the secondary definition of 'somewhat tipsy', which might come in useful, too.

You doubted me, Julia? Surely not!

Bosky - that's a fun word to say!

Hi human, Patsy,

Nice word, right up there with, "Barksy"! My favourite bosky place is Rudyard Lake which is only about three miles from where I live. I take my human dad there for walks. Of course, Rudyard Kipling was named after the lake and not the other way round. His parents loved the place so much that they named him after the lake.

Pawsitive wishes,

Penny πŸΆπŸ˜€

What a fun (and unlikely ) word, Patsy! My favourite bosky place is a local country park.

It is nice.

Thanks, Mac.

Thank you, Nas.

A lake is a good thing to be named after, isn't it, Penny? I'm guessing you were named after penny chews - as you're so sweet.

It doesn't sound bosky, Oscar!

Anywhere that's bosky is one of my favourite places, Rosemary.
