Wednesday Word Of The Week – Flourish

To flourish is to grow vigorously, thrive, prosper or be successful. These grape hyacinths have really flourished since I first planted them.

Flourishing something is to brandish it or wave it vigorously, or to show it ostentatiously. An elaborate expression, rhetorical embellishment or ornamentally curved handwriting could all be considered to add a flourish to your writing. (But not necessarily, especially those first two)

A fanfare played on brass is sometimes known as a flourish, as is an improvised addition at the end of a musical composition.

I hope you’re well, in top form and a real flourisher!
