Snow can't stop the natives

It snowed yesterday and last Friday. Well, it was icy sleet balls. The exotic tropicals and citrus took a beating, but the natives did just fine. This picture shows the Chicken Yard and the layer of ice that's still out there. I read that planting as I did in the fall would let the plants grow roots throughout the winter, but I didn't expect them to grow much above ground. I'm seeing new growth even though it's been pretty cold. One yellow flower even grew a month or so ago.
