First Flowers of 2014??

Steve Sanders sent me this photo of the first crocuses of the year. The photo was taken in Lexington, Kentucky:

Crocuses peaking out--Lexington, Kentucky
This seems like a pretty aggressive, mean thing to do. Well I looked outside my house and look what I saw! The first pink dogwood (or is it flowering crabapple?), growing right out of a snowdrift in my front yard! What a surprising miracle!

How do you explain this?

Someone guessed that these are cheap plastic flowers I thrust into the snow bank. O ye of little faith!
