Today’s Parola del Giorno is the verb, annaffiare (qualcosa), which means to water somethingSee the verb used below in its context:

Quando vado in vacanza, d’estate, devo sempre chiedere al mio amico Ken di annaffiare le piante nel mio balcone. Di solito sto via due settimane, e se qualcuno non le annaffiasse, al mio ritorno troverei solo dei ramoscelli secchi.

When I go on vacation during the summer, I have to always always my friend, Ken, to water the plants on my balcony. Usually I am away for two weeks, and, if someone doesn’t water them, I would find only dry branches on my return.
