      Hi. :) Thank you. Love how there were a couple of birds joining in for good measure. During the day and morning, the birds are quite chatty. At night, the frogs take the wheel. :)

      I appreciate that! Thank you! :)

    Just lovely! Thank you for sharing Jessica. Truly a creative post.
    We have lots of cicadas that strike up their own bands and mocking birds that accompany them.

    Please enjoy a lovely day!

      Thanks Dajena, I bet there are beautiful nature songs your way as well. Cicadas are their own unique work of art. :) Hope you have a wonderful day.

          In the midst of winter, I open my windows and there’s silence… :)

            Jessica,
            Even in the midst of winter, there is some sort of noise over here :)

          • Jessica July 27, 2016 / 1:08 pm

            Sounds like a poem. 💗

          • dmason July 28, 2016 / 11:09 am

            Smiling, ahhh those.. I have so many roaming in my head right now, but have been putting them to sleep. :) Work first, play latter <3

          • Jessica July 28, 2016 / 11:11 am

            Perhaps the poems fuel the work?? :)

          • dmason July 28, 2016 / 11:14 am

            :) I like the way you think Jessica! :)

            Mine is a bit of the opposite. If I get writer’s block, I read. Reading seems to release stuck words. :)

          • dmason July 28, 2016 / 11:46 am

            I have never experienced a writers block, my problem is I have too many things to write about and too little time. Children are a delight but swallow up my time, like cold water in summer days. :)

          • Jessica July 28, 2016 / 12:31 pm

            Wow! No writer’s block?
            I get that too sometimes, too, where words want to fall out and there’s no time to grab a pen. :)

            Have you ever verbally recorded your ideas for later? I use Notes on my phone, and jot down ideas when I can. :)

          • dmason July 28, 2016 / 12:44 pm

            Oh then you understand me perfectly. Yes, that is what I do too :) Great minds think alike :) :)

          • Jessica July 28, 2016 / 12:55 pm

            Peas in a pod! I write most of my posts with pencil on paper before I type them. Flows better sometimes… :)

          • dmason July 28, 2016 / 12:58 pm

            :) 100% true here too :) love how similar we are )

          • Jessica July 28, 2016 / 1:46 pm

            Awesome!! :) That’s so cool!

    • Jessica July 27, 2016 / 3:11 pm

      Thanks, Sylvia. I bet there’s some big time chatter around your back yard in the evenings! With Sammy and all his friends! :)

        I’m sure there must be, but with double glazing, we don’t hear it. :D

        • Jessica July 27, 2016 / 4:19 pm

          How’s your house coming along? Playing your piano yet?? :)

          • anotherday2paradise July 27, 2016 / 4:34 pm

            It’s coming on well, piano is probably six weeks away though.

          • Jessica July 27, 2016 / 4:50 pm

            I bet it’s looking beautiful. Seems like the weeks fly by, soon you’ll be filling your home with music. :)

    How wonderful Jessica. I can often hear the frogs down at the back creek when I’m standing outside at night. I love it! xo :)

      It’s almost like the ocean isn’t even there… :)
