Weekend Theme – Bodacious


Along with it’s early meaning of bold etc, there is a modern addition of sexy, as applied to a curvaceous woman. Some seem to think the word is modern, yet it was in use in the late 1800’s.  Not exactly a modern word.

I was intrigued to see there is also a Bodacious Iris plant

Family: Iridaceae (eye-rid-AY-see-ee) (Info)
Genus: Iris (EYE-ris) (Info)
Cultivar: Bodacious
Hybridized by Keppel; Year of Registration or Introduction: 1986

It’s certainly bold. I’d love to have it in my garden.
