It's always something. Case in point. This morning, Carlos came up to the front porch where Dianna and I were talking, and he shows us this huge, beautiful bouquet. Something he'd whipped together from a coconut frond 'husk'. I just Googled 'What is it called that attaches a palm frond to the trunk?' The answer is it's called the 'leaf sheath.' And, now we all know. Anyway, he'd whipped this together from a palm leaf sheath, and several other flowers and leaves, all from plants around our yard.
As you can see below, he took some of the palm leaves and them to fasten the bouquets to the palapa posts. Pretty nice, if I do say so.

And, here's the other one. They really look vibrant and full of color. It takes someone like Carlos putting them together to really pop us upside the head and to pay attention to some of the amazing color and varieties of what's growing in our yard.
