Sounds Of Summer


"The steady buzzzzzzz of the Katydid chorus,
the bass solo of the croaking Frog,
the steady woof-woof-woof a barking Dog
- a summer night's serenade."

I love that bench. We don't have the katydid chorus or the barking dog, thank goodness. We do have a bull frog. With the air conditioning going,it's pretty quiet and it sure is going a lot. I still can't get cool.

What a beautiful spot to sit and enjoy nature.
I just made one of the Summer Lemonade Pie that you gave us the recipe for. It tastes really good, but as soon as I took it out of the freezer, it started melting really fast. Is that supposed to happen? I had it in the freezer for about 4 hours.

Mary Lou: Yes, barking dogs we have sveral close by...especially in the missle of the night.

Kay: I've never had one to just melt away as soon as it is taken out of the freezer, did you use a 6oz lemonade ?
I'll look into this a little further.

Hi Jo, The best sound I hear in summer is that of the baby birds up in the trees.... Such a sweet sound.

The other sound I hear is that of a golf ball being hit --and a cart driving by on the cart path.... (I like hearing the birds better!!!! ha)
Hugs,
Betsy

Moma and grandma sitting on the bench, while children run through the grass chasing lightening bugs at dusk!

Thanks for the memory.

The bug songs and peepers are so loud right now. I wonder what it would be like to sleep outside (under netting) at night with this loud chorus?

Lovely! I hope there's a delightful cool breeze blowing where the bench is set.

My AMIL and I each enjoy going out to sit on our porches at night just to listen to whoever is singing in the chorus! It's all about showing up and listening...

Hugs!

Those night-time serenades can be magical can't they Jo? What a lovely spot to sit for a while and listen to them. Quite magical! Have a great weekend.

Love that bench...looks like England to me. We don't have the Katydids yet but I'm sure it won't be long until they start up. They shut my husbands hearing aids off! Enjoy your weekend...Maura :)
