Getting ready to get over winter blues with 16th annual Plantasia

HAMBURG, N.Y. (WKBW) — What goes through your mind when you think about spring?

Flowers? Plants? Spring showers? The fact that you won't see snow for several months because it's starting to wear you down?

"This snow that we had today is a perfect example of that. Just when you think it's over, you get more salt in the wound," said De Groff Outdoor Owner Ken De Groff.

But warmer temperatures are on the horizon.

That means the snow will melt, and some people will be eager to start gardening, taking care of their lawns, patios and back yards.

But still, people are eager to say good bye to the lingering cool temperatures.

"I don't want to think snow anymore," said James Mure.

"Flowers and warmth," said Matthew Brodfuehrer, Vice President of S&K Complete Property Services. "When I woke up this morning to have to go salt at 4:30 a.m., it wasn't fun."

"The snow going away for sure," said Mike Frank, owner of Chevalier Outdoor Living.

Spring is no doubt a time to look forward to. Flowers begin to bloom, sunshine feels warm on our skin, and rain washes away the winter blues.

"Spring is a time where there's a sense of being renewed," said De Groff.

And to help you feel renewed, Plantasia will conclude on Sunday with a plant sale.

All the plants on display will up for sale, and the money will be donated to horticulture scholarship programs.
