As the rain came to an end, the sun was setting, making dusk the lightest, brightest part of the day, temporarily blinding. And then I noticed it - the chirping. From outside. But its not exactly chirping, not crickets. . . No. It couldn't be. Isn't it too early? But as I listened, I realized, it was the spring peepers! The temperatures have risen just enough, I guess, and with all the rain, they've made their appearance. A lovely evening chorus, one that will come back night after night for a little while. And then disappear again, just as suddenly as it appeared.
