  • Anytime the white bushes are in bloom, there is a cool spell. The redbud winter, when lilacs are in bloom. Dogwood winter, locust winter, blackberry winter, and dewberry winter. These cool spells will extend into June

  • I can't answer your question, but after spending 5 years in Florida where we only had one winter (which consisted of it getting down to 40 degrees in January and February) I'm quite happy to be living in an area that actually has a change of seasons albeit more than the original four, but I'm ok with that. Besides, these cool spells are a great time to get out and do yard work.

  • I have heard of redbud but they are usually blooming when dogwoods are. We always marked Dogwood, Locust and Blackberry Winters. Those are the ones I know of from my childhood. My grandmother was really in to planting (or doing anything else i.e. potty training,etc.) by the signs on the calendar. She never mentioned any others.
