A Lackadaisical Lexicon for Laggard Logophiles
FLORA
[noun]
Roman mythology: a goddess of flowers and the season of spring. While she was otherwise a relatively minor figure in Roman mythology, being one among several fertility goddesses, her association with the spring gave her particular importance at the coming of springtime. Her festival, the Floralia, symbolised the renewal of the cycle of life, drinking, and flowers. Her Greek equivalent was Chloris, who was a nymph and not a goddess. Flora was married to Favonius, the wind god.
Etymology: Latin Flōra.
