I posted this last year on March 12th, almost a month earlier! Today is the first day I’ve heard the peepers and after the very long, snowy, cold winter we just had it is music for my soul!
After a long cold winter with silent nights, the sound of the cheerful songs of tiny spring peepers makes me smile.I’m always surprised the first time I hear this chorus. I will drive down roads that I know have a swampy area, turn off the radio, open the windows and listen. Once the nights warm up a bit I can hear this happy noise off in the distance. This is one of my favorite signs that winter is over. The knowledge that if these miniature frogs can survive, we certainly can!
