I always thought Bucolic didn't really fit what it meant. It reminds me of bubonic (plague) and colic, and no one likes crying sad sick babies.
So true, Patrick.
EXACTLY, Patrick! Di
You had me at the first one!
This fetching, dulcet list imbued me with felicity. :)
So clever :)
May I add tranquility? I had never heard the word petrichor, but I sure do love what it means. Your son's point above is well-taken. I will never think of bucolic in the same way again. Debbie Z.
I love learning new words. I might feel a bit pretentious using some of them, but @PatrickBoucher I have always thought the same thing for the exact same reason about bucolic!
Wafture may be my new favorite word, although spell check says it is wrong (-:That stack of quilts (or is it fabric?) is beautiful!Di
I've always appreciated the word "serendipity" but it is difficult to work into a sentence!Debbie Z, I also love Tranquility. A stack of quilts = a smile :-)
I don't think I have ever commented, so I am coming out of "lurking" to say I enjoy your blog and to thank you for the list of words, they will be a big help in scrabble.
I think we need to start our own list of the 100 ugliest words. I vote for MOIST as #1. :)
Girls!!! Whatever is good, whatever is right, whatever is just, whatever is pure......😛
Neither moist nor ooze is a naughty word!! :) :) :)

I felt woebegone when the list ended.
