I think we here in Cincinnati are having a blackberry winter. Warm air has arrived, the daffodils are even mostly over, and most importantly for my breakfasting, blackberries have bloomed a bit wherever it is that they are (not here in my yard, unfortunately).
Now we have our cold snap. The boiler is back on, and 30° nights have returned. No more open windows, so at least the oak pollen doesn’t get to sneak back in.
Blackberry winter. A good thing to read.
