Thursday Thirteen--Thirteen Plant Catalogue Adjectives

Bromeliad flower
Bromeliad flower in Puerto Rico

Ever marvel at the language used in a plant catalogue? Here is a sampling of excessive use of adjectives from a plant catalogue or two, in honor of the effusive, glowing, marvellous and intense glamour of spring.

1. Shining
2. Robust
3. Adaptable
4. Striking
5. Lush
6. Unique
7. Stunning
8. Dramatic
9. Exotic
10. Intense
11. Wondrous
12. Vibrant
13. Delicate

Now for homework use, each word in a sentence applied to yourself as in: My intense dark eyes looked vibrant as I combed my dramatic shining hair.
See, you too can be as gorgeous as a catalogue plant! Not bad for instant self esteem!

My intense dark eyes looked vibrant as I combed my dramatic shining hair.

THAT IS GREAT! If only I had thought of it!

Happy Thur-13, please stop by my place.

The moon provided a robust and shining beam which emphasized my striking and unique outfit. That combined w/my luscious lips helped my exotic complexion more stunning upon my dramatic entrance.

That's about all I could come up with.

GREAT LIST, I might just write these down for my kids... For when they are having a bad day... (OK maybe they are an excuse, maybe it is for me)
