I celebrated Thanksgiving in England this year with a trip to the Palm House at Kew Gardens where I visited with a lovely peacock. Designed by Decimus Burton and engineered by Richard Turner (who borrowed techniques from the shipbuilding industry), the Palm House is "one of the most important surviving Victorian iron and glass structures in the world." It features 16,000 panes of glass and was built to house exotic palms and plants. Heated by gas now, the interior atmosphere is designed to capture the wonder of a tropical rainforest. Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving, beautiful peacock (and everyone else)!
