  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Bolled 
  (Ex.  9:31),  meaning  "swollen  or  podded  for  seed,"  was  adopted  in 
  the  Authorized  Version  from  the  version  of  Coverdale  (1535).  The 
  Revised  Version  has  in  the  margin  "was  in  bloom,"  which  is  the 
  more  probable  rendering  of  the  Hebrew  word  It  is  the  fact  that 
  in  Egypt  when  barley  is  in  ear  (about  February)  flax  is 
  blossoming.
