Sounds of Summer
I walk outside this morning and to my surprise, I hear a low, soft humming noise...or was it buzzing? I first thought it was a propeller airplane since we live near a very rural airport...maybe even a helicopter. Hmmm, what was that noise, so who do ask? My two professionally trained listeners.... Gage says "It's bugs!" with a disappointed look on his face (like I should have known the answer). I look on the ground, I look in the sky, I look all around and sure enough, it's thousands,and thousands of June Bugs. There were so many, I thought they had been sent her to lift the entire property up to the sky and relocate the family farmland. Instead, I assume they are just visiting our pecan trees, our peach trees, our grapevines, and our garden. They might as well, w/practically no rain, they are providing us with vegetation anyway.
