February was not January

After a persisting cold January that saw 4 nights at or below freezing in my backyard, this month will go down as the warmest Feb in Orlando. This includes 88F which was the warmest temp in the nation on Feb 26. Tomorrow is forecast to be 89F before it cools down to the mid-70s (average).
All plants are recovering palms all the way to shrubs. Just going to take time. I am somewhat surprised by the coconut recovery. All emerging spears show no signs of damage and the center is looking really green.
