Amazing Adjectives, Number Four!

Happy Monday!  I’m always delighted to break open the pages of my copies of The Highly Selective Dictionary(ies) . . .  or Thesaurus as a means to expand my vocabulary and knowledge.  I’m rarely disappointed.  “They are annually caducous, however, as with the common deer, so that these immense appendages are the growth of a few weeks!”

caducous

\ kuhdoo-kuh s, –dyoo– \, adjective;

1.  Botany. dropping off very early, as leaves.
2.  Zoology. subject to shedding.
3.  fleeting; transitory; perishable; falling off before the usual time.
