I’ve been staying inside a lot this summer. One reason is because of the heat. Another is the problem I’ve been having with my legs.
But I was out in the yard the other day, retrieving the trash can or getting the mail or doing some other small chore when I heard a sound of summer. It was just a minute before I identified it as the cicada “singing.” Yes, it wouldn’t be summer if the cicadas weren’t making their presence known by their song.
Are there insects which sing in your summer? Is their song so common you tune it out and no longer hear it?
