Weird Word of the Week: Pleached

I read this word in "Lud-in-the-Mist," by Hope Mirrlees. I'm just barely on page 8 of the book, and I'm finding more new words.

According to Google, to pleach means "to entwine or interlace tree branches to form a hedge or provide cover for an outdoor walkway."

And here's a great photo of some pleached crab apple trees:

(The book "Lud-in-the-Mist" seems to be a very unusual fairy tale....I'll let you know more about it in an upcoming Fiction Friday post.)
