Welcome to Word of the Week! Stay tuned for a new word each week to amp up your nature vocabulary!

The word of the week is apricity [AH-PRISS-UH-TEE ] (noun): the warmth of the sun in winter.

This word is underused these days, but it is a rather useful name for that wonderful moment in which you are warmed by sun even though the temperature is cold.

Example: “Despite the frigid air temperatures the squirrels were enjoying the apricity while perched upon a branch.”
