Blooms, blossoms or flowers?
I've noticed as I visit various discussion groups, that very many people refer to flowers as "blooms." Daylily folks say "Today's Blooms" then post a lot of pictures. Many folk do the same on other forums.
Am I wrong to be annoyed? When I was a botany student, we learned that these things were called "flowers" and "bloom" was a verb. Has this changed?
Perhaps I should just relax, but it really bugs me.
