My Fin-dow Box

Today’s fish pun isn’t quite as good as yesterday’s, I know, and I promise this isn’t a new blog theme or anything, but I just wanted to share this new word I heard today: I mentioned the geraniums (gerânio) in my window box and it turns out the common name for them in Portugal is “Sardinheira”. Taking a line through other plant names: Pereira (pear tree), amendoeira (almond tree) cerejeira (cherry tree), bananeira (banana tree), framboeseira (raspberry bush) – and it seems to mean “Sardine Plant” which I like very much. It’s offishally the best word ever.
