Stubborn cypress ignore old calendar

Usually by October, the cypress trees brown up,

And in February the needles have all fallen off.

The second green out had staying power.
It wasn't until January that they started
to brown up...

And even now they are
still hanging onto their needles,
the dropping of which is usually
a Thanksgiving event.

This year, Irma blew all the needles away in early September.

That inspired the unexpected second green out in October (above left) ...

And why the trees are holding onto their needles in February so late.
