    blossom and bloom

    What is the difference between "blossom" and "bloom"? Someone says "bloom" is for flowers, while "blossom" is for trees, but there's too many different confusing opinions. If this is something negligible, I will.

    ex)... See how the walnut has grown to fill every corner available to it. It had no say in the size or shape of that shell. However, given those limitations, it achieved its full growth. How lucky we will be if, like the walnut, we blossom and bloom in every aspect of the life that is given us. Take heart! If one nut can do it, so can you.
