Re: You know summer is over when...

The sound of crickets chirping reminds me summer is waning and fall is on its way.

 Oh yes! Same here! We've been noticing trees turning color for a few weeks now! Seems to be the younger trees turning first. Bummer. Woman Sad

I don't hear birds singing in the morning.  It's a quiet stillness.

...when the cicadas are at their loudest, and they leave their shells on our trees and in our yard.

Our State Fair has just ended, so that always signals to me Summer is over shortly-not quite yet though, still nice and warm and sunny!!!!!

 

We were in Michigan over the weekend and it was beautiful there as well, I forget how beautiful that state is. My husband was saying he would love to retire to Michigan........

When my hummingbirds look too fat to be able to fly.

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.
Are you setting an example or being an example?

...when my pool and my house are empty.

My kids and family spend a lot of time here in the summer because we live on the Bay in a Beach area. Labor Day is our last big weekend..till they have the October Fall Festival.
