Press This: gardenhistorygirl: Words with a Garden History: Favela

It’s a short bit about words and gardens.  What’s a better combination?!  And we get to learn about Brazil!

gardenhistorygirl: Words with a Garden History: Favela.

She says:  “What is your favorite word with an unexpected or forgotten garden meaning?  Mine is vignette, which means something short enough to be written on a vine leaf.”

    Oh, wow, so much to say… so little time! I’m honored that you’d want to learn about Brazil! :-)
    I’m not particularly proud of this part of my country, but it is a huge country and each region is different. I live in Sao Paulo, the financial and industrial center. I’m far from Rio and I don’t really know much about favelas. I didn’t even know the word ‘favela’ was originally a plant! O.o
    I have my doubts that thigs will be done in time for the events in 2014 and 2016. One can hope, right?
    Thanks for the mention of my country!
