Word of the Week: Flaxen - having a pale yellow colour of straw

I come across this word often in books (often in reference to hair) but while I had a vague idea of what it means based on context, I was never entirely sure of the specifics. Turns out, it’s simply a reference to colour! Essentially, someone with flaxen hair is a blond. Mystery solved.
