Randam Sequence: Verdure for Sure

"From each of the upper windows a small balcony jutted out, and Effie's imagination covered all with summer verdure."
--S. Annie Frost, "She Hath Done What She Could", in Godey's Lady Book and Magazine, April 1864

(I found a bound copy of several issues of Godey's in my basement and have been flipping through the dusty pages.)

verdure = lush greenery, vegetation

Please don't say I have crabgrass in my yard; I prefer to call it verdure.
