blackberry winter


 My girls thinks it's funny all these winters that we claim around here. After the storms yesterday it has got downright cold. They say but I don't know exactly who they are that blackberry winter is the last cold snap that can produce frost. All I know is 45  is kind of cold around here.  We still have whippoorwill winter to go. We just got out of dogwood. I don't really mind because I can't handle hot! I think they're sort of fun trying to figure out which one is which. You get around older folk and they love to talk about it. Just in case you don't know blackberry winter hits when the wild blackberry bushes bloom.

  1. I have never heard of those terms. We are chilly for the time of year low 40s in the am and highs of 60. We have been very cloudy but not a lot of rain which we badly need.

  2. I have never heard of those terms, either. Winter here is just plain winter - I think it would be fun to have several of them each year. It sure beats the heat for me - I can't handle hot - ;))

  3. Nor have I heard those terms. I like the way they “feel”...I can’t handle hot weather either!

  4. I have heard of "blackberry winter" but not the others. I do believe that it has already past here.

  5. I never have heard of any of these names before. Interesting. Hope you are getting some comfortable cool, but not cold weather. Tonight we can get into the 30's. ;o(
