The beautiful sound of late Summer evenings!

It has finally arrived...the wonderful sound of late summer evenings! One can hear the sound of the "Katy-did" (as I have always called it) and/or cicada for some distance! And the sound that they make in the evening is such a beautiful sound! One thing that I love about living on a mountain is that in the Fall one can see the Fall colors creep down the side of the mountain; in the Spring one can see the new green growth crawl up the side of the mountain; and in the very beginning of Summer, one can roll down the car window to hear one or two katy-dids singing at the bottom of the mountain, and at this time of year, one will hear the dense, synchronized chorus that I find so amazingly beautiful! The beautiful sound of late Summer evenings is finally here!
