Spring is almost over and summer is about to begin. I have lived down south where there is no change in the weather for the most part, and I have lived in southern, central KY, where there is some change.
Here in Indiana there is definitely change. We grow anxious for each season to arrive. I have to admit, I missed these changing seasons when I lived away from here. Have you ever sat outdoors in the evenings during this time of year and really paid attention to the noise surrounding you?
Nature, the sounds of nature are as beautiful as any orchestrated piece of music. Here where I live is considered definitely city life, but in my back yard I get the small view of country and green leaves and trees. Many trees line my property and I enjoy sitting and listening to the sounds.
The sounds I hear are:
The tree frog, which can be seen about anywhere around my house. It has suction feet and can sit on my window or the siding of the house. He has even been seen in my gutters. This is what they sound like.
Then there is the sound and beautiful birds, the Robins.
Another nature critter I enjoy watching is the Lightening Bug. It makes no sound that I no of, but oh boy, do I have the memories of being a kid and making bracelets and rings out of them. Of course mom and dad didn’t teach me that it was wrong to harm these bugs, and I no longer destroy them. I just love to watch them fly at night.
Of course in the day and evening there are the sounds of the crickets. I have used them for fishing bait, but I would rather sit outside at dusk and listen to them chirp.
These are some of my favorite sounds in the Spring and Summer evenings. What do you enjoy listening to?
