Bloom

"Bloom and grow" is a lovely thought for the flowers of springtime, whether the alpine edelweiss of Austria or the dandelions in my front yard. The ancient Greek word for "bloom and grow" was thallo (THAH low). They used it to describe the way trees bud out, bloom, and bear fruit when the winter season is past. The young shoots were a symbol of new life and fertility, and were often used to weave a wreath to wear as a crown.
