Definition of dogwood winter

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Terry:

Similar to blackberry winter a dogwood winter is a term used by Southerners to describe a period of cold weather that coincides with the blooming of the local dogwoods.

Typically the trees bloom sometime between mid-April and mid-May (depending on the weather variations of the season) and such a cold spell is often the last winter-like weather of the season.
