BROOKLYN - Spring fever has hit the streets of Brooklyn with residents putting away their snow shovels and heading to stores to stock up on flowers.

Stores, such as Lowe's, are seeing more shoppers coming out to buy flowers, barbecues and trees. One shopper says the warm weather has inspired him to open his wallet. Other shoppers say the start of spring has them excited to buy plants for their homes.

At Gowanus Nursery, the owners are doing last minute prep work before they open for the season. Owner Michele Paladino says the spring is a big time of year. She says the next three months generate 70 percent of the business for the year.
