Blackberry winter

Every area seems to have its descriptors for weather. What exactly are the "dog days of summer?"

Here in the Ozarks, we have "Blackberry winter" every few years. That is the freeze that comes when the blackberries are blooming. This year's blackberry winter was mild, just a frosting on the tops of the hay stacks and the sheep shelters.
The blackberries from Leesa; elderberries from Melody C; day lilies from Linda W.;  and on around the garden are all fine. I love that my garden is growing into a passalong visit with my friends..
