Adumbrate \a-ˈdəm-ˌbrāt\ transitive verb
- to foreshadow vaguely, to disclose partially
Spring is all about peeking. The sun peeks out from behind the clouds, hardy flowers peek up through the snow, and we who have been bundled up in woolens all winter start to peek out from under our wrappings. It’s too soon to come all the way out (at least where I live), but perhaps it’s safe to let your fingers venture forth.
