Dogwood Winter

Dogwood winter is here. Most of us from the Southeast understand exactly what it is: if the dogwoods are blooming it is a guarantee that we will have cold weather. I’ve seen it every year during my life.

Now, here is something else my Nanny Caylor shared with me about the dogwoods. Please feel free to add your input to this…. The color of the dogwood flower will help predict our next winter’s snows. For example if the petals are bright white then we will have a colder winter with snow. If the petals are more ivory colored, then we will have a mild winter without snow.  Have any of you ever heard this?  Enjoy the beauty of the dogwoods you all!
