I first noticed this ole boy clinging to our balcony wall this morning. He and his crew have been pretty busy these hot nights. Seeing him there all by himself made me feel a little sad for him. But then it occured to me that maybe he's recuperating for a heavy date!
Cicadas are cool critters and I love the symphony they provide at night. That, fireflies and the earthy, warm fragrance are what make summer unique. Having said that, I'm looking forward to the cool, slow-decaying fragrance of autumn.
