  • Surely the hard blue winterset

    Must have conveyed a message to him—

    —Lawrence Durrell, 'On First Looking into Loeb's Horace'

    Lots of ghits for proper names, but none I can see for a common noun; also not in OED, so I suspect a nonce-coinage of Durrell's. (But what would the places be named for?)
