ABC Wednesday: R


Months ago I stumbled upon a word - rupestrine which means living or growing on or among rocks. So I wrote the word into a post-it and attached it to my calendar at work. I see it every single day and wondered when I would be able to use the word for ABC Wednesday. Well, now is that time and I'm happy to share this word I learned.


  1. You found a great shot to represent the new word you taught us today!

  2. New word for me too.
    Your photo is a perfect example of RUPESTRINE.
    Spellcheck doesn't like that spelling..(:0)

  3. so you see.... everything happens for a reasons, even if that reason is not obvious at the moment of happening

    Have a wonderful ABC-day / - week

  4. Great word and I like the shot.

  5. A great new word coupled with an equally amazing picture!

  6. For me also a great new word!! I wonder if the trees that grow in the rocks in Norway, are also called rupe strine!

  7. That is a new word, but not the concept. The mountains around here are Rife with growing plants amongst the stone.

  8. Wow rocking word for R :)
    I like how you saved it up for this meme. :)
    Happy ABCW!


Would love to hear what you think.
