The sounds of the night...

Summer time and the sounds of the night in east Texas. First thing I hear are the crickets chirping I wanted to share the sounds of the night in east Texas. Tonight the moon is almost full as it rises in the sky. The stars twinkle and I see the big dipper. It is humid and hot with no breeze tonight. Usually there is a gentle breeze that makes the night perfect.








You hear the sounds of the crickets and the tree frogs croaking with the buzz of a mosquito, the call of the whippoorwill and the wafting smell of honeysuckle are all intoxicating. You take it all into your senses. It is a delicate blend of a medley of sounds and senses. It takes you back to your childhood memories. I try to enjoy it all before the dreadful heat of summer arrives.


Can't


you


SMELL


It?


One of my favorite little creatures, the tree frog. I hear them croaking and I see them on the glass of my patio door. They are waiting for the moths and bugs to eat for a night time treat.







The almost full moon rises in the night sky and the stars are twinkling. I look and I find the Big Dipper. The clouds open to reveal a sky full of stars.

What a lovely post... I wonder how many of us go out and truly experience the sensations of a spring evening. :-)

I hope you'll stop by, as well!

What a wonderful set of photos and descriptions. And how lucky you are to see the tree frogs on your windows! Ours are so shy that I have yet to see one, though there are clearly vast tribe of them here.

I'm planning to do night sounds in Indiana for next time, if I can ever get the video to load. Do stop by and compare notes?

Lovely post.

One of the things I look forward to when I go abroad is listening to the crickets at night whilst sitting with a cool drink looking out to sea! :)
