Whoa, rain is beatin' against the windows and they're rattlin' from the wind blowin' against 'em, I think we're havin' a Spring time storm here. We've got a tornado warnin' in the county just east of us. It was windy and cloudy here all day but the temps were in the low 70's so it was pretty nice out.
I went for a walk around our hay field, earlier in the day. I mow walkin' paths around it all summer and it makes it easy to walk all year long, and I could hear the frogs carryin' on. I love that noise. It's a good Spring/Summer sound The tree frogs and cicadas are two of my favorite summer time sounds. I also like the little brown shell of a body the cicadas shed after comin' up from the ground. My granddaughter loves to look for them and she puts them in a box or bucket and saves them. She's funny.
I love the sound of kids playin' outside in warm weather and the sound of lawnmowers, other than mine, off in the distance, and the smell of fresh cut grass.
I love the smell of fresh cut hay and there is hardly a prettier site than a freshly cut hayfield with bales of hay sittin' out across it.
There are so many memories, things we do or sounds we hear that we associate with Summer. What are your favorites? What makes you feel like Summer has truly arrived?
