Blackberry Winter

Walking the dogs today, I realized why the weather was so damp and chilly...well at least the explanation that my grandmother Mamie and my mom would give.   The wild blackberry vines are blooming, it's blackberry winter.   That is the weather lore I heard every spring, and I smiled as I thought about my mom and grandmother today.  I would say their observation would be spot on.
The blackberry vines are full of flowers.


  1. Never heard that one! I love how the old wisdoms are so accurate.

  2. Hmmm...I'm going to check our wild blackberry bushes but I'm really over the word "Winter" however! It's finally beautiful here...70de today and sunshine! Yeah! Have a good weekend!

  3. i have heard of blackberry winter but never knew what it meant. Thanks.
