Whimsical Word of the Week

Dibble -

a pointed gardening implement to make holes in soil, especially for planting bulbs or seedlings.
Example: The angry autumn sky brooded over the gardener as he wielded his dibble to plant the bulbs.

  1. Interesting. I've seen one of these things somewhere. Maybe at a living history...anyway, I'm keeping this one in my word book.

    1. I agree. And it was appropriate for me to feature it since I planted some iris bulbs a few days ago. (Sans the dibble! ^_^)
