SCOTCH PLAINS/FANWOOD, NJ -- Following yesterday's rains and today's temperatures creeping up to 60 degrees, snow has begun to melt across Scotch Plains and Fanwood. In many areas, snow-covered lawns are beginning to give way to patches of green.

Although it's too soon for the flower buds to stick up their heads, there are other signs of spring, including the arrival of daffodils and green carnations at Apple Blossom Flower Shop (381 Park Ave.) in downtown Scotch Plains.

"Daffodils are a sign of spring," said owner Lisa Mohn, who is also president of the Scotch Plains Business and Professional Association
