A Treasure Hunt of Sorts…

The summer is drawing to an end. One of the noises we will really miss this winter is the song of the cicadas. The children had so much fun collecting the empty shells last week. Each year they like to collect them and see who finds the most. We collected them off of tree bark, window frames, the grape arbor, the play set.

We decided they looked good on our shirts. How many could we pin to the shirt and keep on while running around the yard? Was it 16 bugs?

Then we caught a ” live one” after hatching. It gave us a bit of a fright…

Bugs are amazing creatures. Who can deny it? See and hear you next year, little cicada!

  1. I LOVE the sounds of cicadas at night. We live on water, so we also get a chorus of frogs at night, especially after it rains. These are my favorite sounds of summer. We will miss them too.

  2. How cool to hear a concert of frogs! I feel sorry for people who only get to hear the sound of cars and engines. If there is one thing I don’t miss it’s the big city noises of Berlin…

  3. Oh, that’s alot of bugs! I remember collecting them off of trees when I was a child, too.

  4. They look kinda cute, not sure I could handle a shirtful of them though! Looks like fun :o)
