Word of the Day
- Withering but not falling off, as a blossom that persists on a twig after flowering.
The word 'marcescent' comes from a Latin word meaning 'to wither'.
Quote of the DayThe mountains, the forest, and the sea, render men savage; they develop the fierce, but yet do not destroy the human.
- Victor Hugo (1802 - 1885), French poet, dramatist, novelist.
