Two Years Later

This is what the house looks like today.

It wasn't bright and sunny when I took this picture today. But I think you can see it doesn't look like a hurricane house any more. The orchid tree has an odd branch structure now, but still, it's grown way up over the roof again. The triangle palm's trunk is curved, but upright. The queen palm not only grew lots of new fronds, she's also put out flowers and fruit again. In most palms, that's evidence of excellent health. Her trunk is marked with dents and scrapes from the hurricane, and from being hoisted back upright by a big rig.
Scars all over, you see. But thriving anyway.
