Every so often I get in the mood to play with words, and try and define them in my head.
There’s the word dot, which rhymes with spot, and looks a lot like a spot, only perhaps dots are more evenly-shaped and distributed than spots?
First off, polka dots, which are certainly very even.

The grounds were ‘dotted’ with tiny daisies.
Compared to dots I feel that spots are more irregularly shaped and come in random patterns.
Doing a search for ‘spot’ turns up a variety of orchids, and here they are after I’ve played around with them.
Diptych of a weathered skateboard spray-painted with pink spots on it combined together with cherry trees in full blossom just off Broadway. If I were to paint this I would be spending time adding all sorts of spots, big ones for the skateboard and little tiny ones for the blossoms on the tree.
I thought I’d add ‘splotch’ to this post as I seem to be calling larger, more irregular spots ‘splotches’.
