Day XXXII: θŠ±θ–θ’² :purple_circle:

Decided to read the Iris link from yesterday’s story and turns out there’s a flower for every day of the year too… this site is a maze of infinite links.

Pretty interesting to find out the symbolism of the iris and what it’s been used for in history. Plus it’s real pretty.

~ New Words (mostly plant related) ~
菖蒲 (しょうぢ) - Japanese Iris - I put this down yesterday too but I’ve already forgotten how it’s read.
ε€šεΉ΄θ‰ (γŸγ­γ‚“γγ†) - Perennial plant
θŒŽι ‚ (けいけょう) - Tip of a stem / stem apex
腐怍 (ちしょく) - Humus soil
ι–‹θŠ±ζœŸ (かいかき) - Flowering season (anthesis)
ε„šγ„ (はかγͺい) - Fleeting, short-lived
ε†…ζ°— (うけき) - Shy, reserved
η₯žη΅Œη—› (しんけい぀う) - Nerve pain (neuralgia)
θ’² (がま) - Common Cattail


so jealous Hokkaido looks really beautiful, and there’s lots of interesting history too!

Seriously?? No way !! What are the chances of that? :laughing:

Thanks for explaining! I’ve been slowly discovering new words to use with ある as a prefix.
