My massage therapist tells me, about the months in the year, that the "old people" of Bulgaria say there are eleven brothers and one sister. March is the sister. She can be so moody because February, the smallest brother, drank all the wine. I love that! Those old Bulgarians know what they're talking about. Here in Washington DC, after a spectacularly lovely month, it is supposed to snow today. Not a lot, but still! My favorite meteorologist says we will experience a "conversational" snow, just a dusting, but oh my.
Whether it's just snow or a lot of rain, the drastic change in the weather will definitely be a serious bummer for the green world orgy of pink, white, and earliest spring green. I hope it doesn't get too windy, hope it doesn't blow away the cherries, now in bud around the Tidal Basin, in bloom in many parts of the city.
But you never know about March; anything could happen. If my little brother drank all the wine, I might be in a bad mood, too, who knows?
