sounds of summer

The sound of summer in Japan is made by the semi (cicada).

They are awfully noisy especially in the morning. Sometimes you can even hear them at night too.

I once saw one on our lanai door and boy did it shake the glass with its chirping.

I've written a pretty detailed post on them here.

Do you have cicada where you live? What is the sound of summer where you are?

They were a lot of 'em in Provence. Man are they ever noisy! We don't get them at our altitude though, just crickets.

Oh my gosh, thanks for the trip down memory lane! I don't miss them, but I'd trade right now, our sounds of summer are from a 6 week road construction project on our street.

Take care.
