faner

The word of the day is faner.  It comes from a Latin word for hay (le foin). It usually means to wilt.  It can also mean to toss or turn grass to dry it out.
  • Les fleurs commencent à se faner dès qu’elles sont cueillies.
The flowers began to wilt the moment they were picked.
  • L’herbe se fane quand on la laisse trop longtemps sur pied.
The grass wilts when left unharvested too long.
