Glad Europe has been spared the weather experienced over much of the U.S.  Someone recently posted photos of beautiful palms growing in northern Europe; a mild winter certainly helps keep the palm trees looking great.  

Happ,

You're right, a winter like this is very good for the exotics over here. If they say to me, you get from now only winters like this one i say yes!

But good looking, the don't have got damage from the winter, but like you know we have got 3 storms, and almost every palm have got some wind damage over here ... But not to bad ... if the spring comes now early we gonna get a lon growing season :D

I'm relatively happy at the moment, as temperatures have been consistently 2°C/3.6°F or more above the forecast temperature.  Most days 11-12°C/52-54°F, and nights 8-9°C/46-48°F.

I say relatively happy, because that's as good as I get until summer arrives.

It has been relatively dry in February.  I hope it rains more in March.

But, as usual the temperature is a constant.

Very humid the next few days and a good chance of thunderstorms. It is really dry everywhere and the ponds and canals are low, so we could use the rain and heavy rain at that. 67.7F at 6:18AM on our way to 83F today. Beautiful weather and on our way to summer.

Just lovely over here in Tarpon Springs as well.

Plants should really start to perk up from here on out.
