Sienna Saturday - May 23rd

Hi all,

Have I mentioned that I love looking things up in the dictionary? And now that we have great dictionary resources on the internet, there is no excuse for not learning unfamiliar words. That said, after I read the sienna definition, I had to look up ferruginous.

sienna si⋅en⋅na  [see-en-uh] –noun
1. a ferruginous earth used as a yellowish-brown pigment (raw sienna) or, after roasting in a furnace, as a reddish-brown pigment (burnt sienna).
2. the color of such a pigment.

1750-60, "earth of Siena," from a city in central Italy,
where the coloring material was first produced.

ferruginous  [fuh-roo-juh-nuhs] –adjective

1. Geology. iron-bearing: ferruginous clays.
2. of the color of iron rust.

That's funny. My husband tells me he used to sit and read the dictionary for pleasure.
