abejeruco, beautiful room, looks like you have a great hand with the carpentry too. Being able to construct things is a blessing, consider yourself that way. It is an admirable trait to possess.
My husband loves to build, he builds and builds more, rooms, barns, fences, pantries, everything that you could imagine. He is amazing and I feel deep gratitude that I have him to build. That it is life dream when we retire from our foster caring field, to build.
I think that one of his most incredible building feats was when he built a beautiful white picket fence around our yard. He did this because our daughter was going to be married at our home and he wanted it extra nice. He spent months working on this project. There is approximately 750 pickets that he cut, painted, cemented in each fence post for it. An enormous undertaking, but he did it. In time for the wedding. I will post a picture of part of the fence, amazing. Our yard is very, very large and if you can imagine how big it would be to require that many pickets. He devised an incredible invention for painting each picket. It was a tall tube that he filled with the paint and dipped each one, and of course had to dry them too, I actually did not believe he could do it when he told me his plans. Wow!!!
That August 4 was a day to remember, 5 years ago. I was still heavily involved with still running my little nursery that I opened each spring for about 2 months to a select clientelle. I had greenhouses, lights, furnace and all that was required to propogate plants.
The wedding theme was blue, that meant that I had to spend months propogating all manner of blue flowers, in all the shades of blue, very impressive gardens that year for sure. Blue and white. I did throw in some orange shades of plants, to break the shades of blue up, (there must always be some orange colour in my gardens!!!).
Hmm..I do go on.
Abejaruco, I wanted to tell you that the beautiful plant that is in the room is indeed beautiful. You called it a Kentia. Awesome. I have attempted to grow this plant in my home (I have an amazing green thumb too), but it has never survived well. Disaster every time. No idea why, just one that I cannot seem to grow. Here in my country, it is called a "palm" majestic. Interesting the different species of plants that are named differently in many places. Have an awesome day. Cindi
