What Is Dogwood Winter?
Tennessee has had some crazy weather lately. There have been some very warm days and even a few into the 80's. This week took a turn toward freezing temps with a few snowflakes appearing the first of the week. The nights have been in the 30's so it has been jacket weather for sure.
When this happens in the Spring, Dogwood Winter has arrived in Clarksville. It comes every year around this time in the month of April. I look forward to it because the dogwood trees are at their best in Dogwood Winter.
Dogwood Winter represents a drastic change in temperature resembling wintertime starting all over again. Sometimes it is such a severe change in the weather that temperatures dip down below freezing, snow can happen and cover the ground. This week the gray skies and cold winds were also signs.
It doesn't stick around long and I expect we will be back in the 70's next week. Now is the perfect time to be thinking about spring gardens, preparing the soil and start early planting. You have to be careful and ready to cover plants if we should ahppen to get another freeze.
