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?
Beautiful - as long as you don't break an ankle, when the umbriferous trees would hide you from any rescuing helicopter.
Nice word that rolls off the tongue.
It is, Suzy. They must be connected, surely?
They would, Lizy. Best tread carefully.
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 :)
...from the Latin word Umbra for shade - I wish I had learned Latin - how many words we use originate from one simple Latin word!
Have never used the word but did know the Latin root! Love that photo.
I know you make up words...
That looks really peaceful...
Lovely word! Never even knew it existed. Thanks for sharing it with us. :)
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.
Aaah... looks so cool and calm. :-)
That's a new one for me!
Gorgeous word for a gorgeous photo x
I've only been once, Tracy. I'd like to go again and see it in other seasons.
I only know a few latin words, Janet - those connected with plants and Naval mottos.
I didn't know either, Rosemary.
You can't prove that, Mac.
It was, Alex - except by the bigger waterfalls.
I keep wondering what I might be forgetting each time I learn something new, Linda.
Some words deserve to be used more though, don't they, Maggie?
It's a relaxing place, Misha.
I hope you'll find a use for it, Beverly.
They do go well together, don't they, Sue?
