Festival of trees

It’s been unusually chilly for Florida on the whole, but there is definitely a reason  for Lake Worth’s motto being “Where the tropics begin”.  We have the gulf stream moving north, pushing the warm air up from the Bahamas, while the cold weather comes from the north so where is that demarcation line?  Jupiter just 40 miles north of us, and what a difference.  DSCN4880 We enjoyed a beautiful day for the Festival of Trees, and everyone seemed to be in attendance.  It was crowded throught the day with lots to see and do.  Didn’t matter what you were into,  orchids, native plants, trees, gardening advice.
