No Cicadas Here

It's weird to be disappointed about something like dodging the bullet of a cicada swarm outbreak, but Noah and I were really looking forward to the Brood II emergence this year.

Unfortunately, it never happened. In fact, we have yet to hear the whir of a cicada here at all. I think I remember that last year it was around this time in the summer before the cicadas made an appearance.

I'm from the South, so cicadas are a mark of summer, and to have to wait for them so late in an already short season  makes me feel like something is missing.

So instead we'll have to content ourselves with some images I captured over the past few months and haven't yet posted.

Oh, and tell me what you're reading now! I'm reading Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo (thanks Margo, luv, for the recommendation of Shadow and Bone).

  1. I love the lone tree.

    I'm a serious tree hugger.

  2. Lovely pictures. I could stare at all of them for a long time.

  3. I like the pics a lot. They look quite professional.

    What am I reading right now? Blood Spirits by Sherwood Smith (sequel to Coronets and Steel). It's very good.


What's on your mind? I wanna know!
