There is something that can be said about living in the country. Here, the typical noises of civilization are absent…the sounds of traffic, of dogs barking, children playing and being noisy.
Instead, all one hears is nature’s silence punctuated with the chirping of birds and the wind blowing through the trees.
Now that Spring has arrived, the night-time sounds are of hundreds of peepers singing their songs in the swampy areas surrounding this place we call home. The peeping is so loud that it drowns out the other noises of the night.
