Usage notes

Attested since Early New Lemizh, the cherry orchard or grosòr. is a metaphor for an otherworldly, beneficial place full of rich, thick colours, sounds and smells; somewhat akin to the Garden of Eden of our mythology. This metaphor is so gross that the sanity of the Early New Lemizh has been questioned on its basis.
