Dogwood Winter

This is something I'd never heard of before.  There are a number of different kinds of "winter" down here.  This refers to a cold snap during the time of another occurrence, such as the dogwoods blooming.  This can happen with the Redbud trees, locust trees, etc.  There is a Whipoorwill winter and a Lindsey-Woolsey winter.  It is written about quite well here:
So I will let you all read this.  He does a great job of explaining it all!
Right now my peonies and iris and roses are all blooming.  We are going to be a bit cooler tomorrow, in the 60s.  Not really a winter but last week we had three nights of frost.  The locusts are blooming so I guess this is a Locust Winter!
