לִפְרוֹחַ

If you’ve got some basic Hebrew (or have studied at an Israeli university and received a scholarship for tutoring via the program of this name), you probably know the word for flower – פרח .

To flower or to blossom/bloom is the simple verb לפרוח.

For example, you may recall the ט”ו בשבט (Tu Bishvat) song:

השקדייה פורחת…

The almond tree is blossoming…

You can also use לפרוח metaphorically, as in:

כשהוא נותן לה מחמאות, היא פשוט פורחת.

When he pays her compliments, she simply blooms.
