Local Gardens in Bloom Due to Mild Winter

Warmer temperatures have caused some flowers to grow earlier.

April showers bring May flowers, but May's flourish has made an early appearance this year.

Eddie Sanchez, manager of Old Mill Nurseries in Bellmore, said that flowers have bloomed weeks ahead of schedule due to lack of snow and warmer temperatures.

"We are seeing flowers that we usually see in April or May," Sanchez said.

Flowers such as daffodils, tulips and hyacinths have already bloomed, according to Sanchez.

"These are the kinds of flowers that we do not see until around Mother's Day weekend," he said.

Sanchez said that warmer temperatures and early blooming will not have a negative effect on plants and flowers, but it could cheat flower lovers in a way.

"We are going to have a short bloom and people won't be able to see and appreciate the flowers as long as they used to," he said.
