If you spot flowers growing elsewhere of their own volition in Darien, send us a picture so that we can keep the rest of the community on top of these groundbreaking developments.
Darien Patch is informed by a source (who requested not to be identified because of the sensitive nature of the information) that flowers will arise naturally from the ground at this time of year.
"It's nothing to be alarmed about," said the source. "People may not be too familiar with them after so many months of winter, but familiarity will grow with time."
Authorities request that you avoid stepping on them, at least until you need to mow your lawn.
The first day of Spring is March 20.
