I came across this word in a story by William Sansom 8 in fact is an adapted version for students, from "Now read on".
He is descibing how incredibly bright the light and the flowers are:
"Red, yellow, purple and white, the large flower-moons stared like blodges from a paint box, hard as the colours of stained-glass windows".
I have not been able to find it in any dictionary.

    Thank you very much, Man from Aztlan. It makes sense. We can imagine the flower-moons stared like the roundish irregular shapes of the splodges of paint on the paintbox staring. Poetry is not my best.

    Pienso es una Cosa Ingles. Podemos mezclar dos palabras (Blob and Splodge) que son similares y hacer una palabra nueva, que no existe en realidad.
