Some of us still have snow in our yards but that isn't stopping the Spring flowers from claiming some real estate in our gardens. This late Winter time of the year I call the Mother Nature vs Mother Nature season. We get cold days and then warm days and the bugs and plants seem to finally say 'Hey, I'm waking up and there's nothing you can do to stop me'.

I've got Crocus flowers in my yard and the Iris buds are popping through the snow patches in the gardens. We all feel you flowers - we don't like the constant weather surprises either.
