I mentioned in my Mother's Day message that I was given a pinecone. I expected to see palm trees when we came to the Dominican Republic but I was surprised by the evergreens!

A lot of furniture here is made out of pine. The only problem with it is that it often gets termites. Since we've been here, the owners of our house have replaced our kitchen cupboards and all of our doors because of the termites. I'm hoping that we won't see any more for a while!
Come back tomorrow for another kind of tree and furniture that you might not expect to find in the Dominican Republic.
Have a great day!
