Can spring really be that far away when the bright yellow daffodils pop out? While we hope so, spring is still a ways off and the weather forecast is predicting possible snowy mix on Tuesday. During the week of Feb. 20 last year a big ice storm hit North Texas. The first official day of spring is March 20 and Daylight Savings Time arrives on March 10. Daffodils, Flowering Quince and Hyacinths are many of the early risers around local gardens.
