Just got internet back today.  Lots of Zephyranthes citrina are blooming after all the rain.  One bud of Eucharis amazonica made it through the storm and is now blooming even though the foliage is mush.  A few random Zephyranthes also in bud or blooming in pink and white- and one "Old Valles Yellow" zephyranthes.  A couple of Hymenocallis (native ones, Tropical Giant, Sister of Tropical Giant, etc.) putting up new buds.
A few days after a Cat 3 storm I can appreciate wisdom of geophytes in keeping their heads protected.  Today I just want a little shade.  
Abaco, where the out islanders shrug off a Cat 3 hurricane quickly but the gardens take a bit longer.
