Today’s word is Fennel. It’s a tall plant, which reaches up to 6-8 feet. Fennel has blue stripes on its stem, with large umbels of yellow flowers, and a strong licorice scent.
Fennel was used in fertility and virility spells. Some people hung it above their backdoor on midsummer’s eve. This was to banish hostile entities and bad luck from their home.
Hope all enjoyed today’s post and comes back tomorrow to find out what word I chose that begins with the letter, “G”.
Have a great day and remember:
Let Imagination Soar
Write and Read With Creativity
