  • Cicadas...music to your ears

    One of my favorite things about summer is my front row seat at the orchestra. The orchestra of insects, that is.  

    Late summer, when temperatures cool down enough to turn the air conditioner off and open the windows we fall asleep to the sounds of katydids, crickets and cicadas.  

    I sometimes cheat in the heat of the summer and crack the window in my office so I can hear the insects and the birds as I work at the computer or in the kitchen.
