Little Green Shoots

One unexpected outcome from our recent near freezing temperatures is that two of my outdoor plants are thriving --- because I brought them inside.  Apparently, the pseudo-furnance I use to heat my Florida abode was pumping out enough warm air to create a greenhouse effect of sorts.  After the first night, this plant sprouted two little green leaves.   Now, there are four.   And, my little palm tree has never looked better!  Unfortunately, I had to break the news to them last night that they are outdoor plants.  They'll be under close observation for awhile.

You're funny! Break it to them gently!

One step forward, two steps back this winter. There are probably many of their plant friends who have dropped leaves in the past cold week.

Perhaps you have your heat set too high...
