An old wooden wheelbarrow seems to have been planted as a focal point and extra treat for the eyes along a path in Monet's Garden at Giverny. Brouette is the French word for wheelbarrow; you'll sometimes hear it used in the expression "et des brouettes," meaning some more or a little more. This use came about because a wheelbarrow is generally used to carry inexact or variable quantities.

Get cosy with a French children's story!
Anyone at any age can boost his French proficiency by reading . . . and there is no better starting place than a fully-illustrated and vocabulary enhancing children's story like Le Lapin et le Roi Grenouille. It and its English version, The Rabbit and King Frog, were written by Marianne Lecron and are available on worldwide Amazon sites. Click on the titles to take a peek!
