When I moved here that field was all grassland/wetland with a very small pond. When you laid in bed at night with the window open in the nice weather it sounded like you were out far away from civilization--reminded me of being up at a cabin in northern Minnesota. I'd go to sleep to the sound of frogs, geese, ducks, and crickets in the spring and fall. The frogs and crickets were around all summer, of course--and I could watch the rabbits all year round as they changed from white to brown to white. But eventually--all that will be left will be the crickets. You can never totally get rid of crickets--almost like cockroaches! Crickets are pleasant singing in chorus, but can be annoying in a solo--hehe!
I will miss the lake sounds.
Well, happy Monday! More tomorrow. :)
