Bodacious Blooms for bodacious. Why did I pick this B-word? Because I like it. I like the attitude that word conjures. I am a bit tired of using the plain old 'b' adjectives to describe the blooms that captivate me, that make my heart skip a beat. 'Beautiful' is a bit worn out and weary, 'bewitching' is becoming too familiar to cast that spell that would be needed for some of my favourite blooms. Hence BODACIOUS.

If flowers could be bold, brassy and bodacious these might make the grade:

Check out ABC Wednesday  for more B words..

    Thank you so much for leaving such a kind comment. I agree with you, and we would be so much poorer without the beauty of plants and flowers to brighten our world.
