Puṣpita (पुष्पित) refers to “blossomed and bloomed” (i.e., the trees and creepers), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.21. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] When Kāma (God of Love) reached the vicinity of Śiva, Spring spread all his splendour in accord with the inclination of the lord. The trees and creepers blossomed and bloomed (puṣpita). Waters were covered with full blown lotuses. Bees hovered round the lotuses. When that excellent season set in, the gentle Malaya breeze fragrant and delightful due to sweet smelling flowers blew all round”.
