The term “Babine huke” (Old Lady’s Roars in English) can be found in almost every Slavic nation’s vocabulary and refers to the time when spring fights with winter. During this period the weather is very unstable and changes are frequent, with strong wind, rain, sun, and snow, sometimes all within one day. As a personification of the month March, the term “old lady Marta” was assigned, due to its deceptive nature and unpredictable weather. When “old lady Marta” was mad at somebody, there was cold weather and wind. But when she was happy, the sun was shining and spring was on its way.

this is a little thing, a little silly but free-when the first strawberries of the real true season came in, heavy and sweet and deep red, the air was still a little crisp but it was warm enough to break out my favorite sundress. i sat in the front seat of my lover's car with the windows down, eating them in the parking lot of the walgreens in orange mound, memphis with my thighs sticking a little to the warm leather seats--and in that moment, everything was blooming back and forth between spring and summer and i couldn't remember anything i was worried about fifteen minutes before.
