A shady sitting place, usually in a park or garden, and usually surrounded by climbing shrubs or vines and other vegetation. A grove of trees.
From Middle English arbour, from Old French erbier (“field, meadow, kitchen garden”), from erbe (“grass, herb”), from Latin herba (“grass, herb”) (English herb). (Compare Late Latin herbarium, although erbier is possibly an independent formation.) The phonetic change to ar- was influenced by Latin arbor (“tree”).
