Answer: It has been a confusing winter. I hope spring and summer behave normally! I'm sure the flower bulbs are fine, though the flower buds may have been damaged by cold temperatures. When spring arrives in earnest, you can give the plants a light feeding with flower fertilizer to help the bulbs grow strong and produce flower buds for the following year.
If your soil freezes in fall/winter, you can mulch with several inches of bark mulch to keep the ground frozen, which will hopefully keep the bulbs from pushing up during thaws. Best of luck!
