Everything’s Bosky, Baby

As a lover of words and woods, this gem was sent to me through Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day email. It means having to do with thick woods and bushes. To me, it sounds like a type of dance or an unnaturally colored drink served in a fragile glass with a paper umbrella.

I took this picture of a bosky landscape in the Shenandoah Mountains last year. I wish I’d met the word earlier.

It reminds me of a time in high school when I was writing a poem and tried to find another word for green. I came up with verdant. Miss Jackson, my English teacher, wrote: “Trite.”

Of course, she was right! Which makes me wonder if I should change my name from Sandy Green to Sandy Bosky?

It has a certain verdant quality, yes?
