It’s all cicadas all the time. Enjoy these pictures of the lifecycle of the Brood X cicada. Our neighbor’s fence is a regular living biology lab, starting with the nymph crawling up the fence or nearby tre and hatching into an adult. They’re white when they first hatch but have those red eyes. After a few hours they turn black and ready for sex! We stopped to view the “lab” on the fence on a walk into our little town. We bought some muffins at the bread store and then headed home by way of some friends, another British expat couple, who live near us and whom we haven’t seen much in the past few years. Hubby opened their underground sprinkler system for the season.
Our neighbors on the cul du sac around the corner had a block party this afternoon. I wheeled my knee scooter over to sit a spell and meet people I’ve seen on my periodic walks around that block. Mostly young families, with a few “older” folk like me. I’ll enjoy getting to know them better. Later, I took a bike ride around the cemetery.
