Every gardener knows there are vagaries of weather following the first warm days in early spring, but not all gardeners know their names, or that they have names, and why. Old-timers in the Appalachians know there are several named "winters" following winter, and Blackberry Winter is perhaps the best known. There is also Dogwood Winter, Locust Winter, Whippoorwill Winter, Redbud Winter and even Linsey-Woolsey Britches Winter.
Cumberland Falls is located within the Daniel Boone National Forest, which covers much of the ancient Cumberland chain of the Appalachian Mountain's in eastern Kentucky. It is sometimes referred to as the "Niagara of the South". Cumberland Falls, along with Victoria Falls, in Africa, are the only rivers in the world, known to produce the phenomena known as a "Moon Bow."
