I grew up in the country andI grew up in the country and was taught by my dad of many "observations". I'm constantly observing the outdoors as I'd rather be outside than cooped up inside. I love to garden and have a dog to walk every day. I enjoy the sounds of the insects. During the hot summer months, I love the sound of what I call the "tree cricket". And when fall approaches, there is a whole new sound to listen to. I too delight in Puffball season; a delicacy to say the least ! I have the privilege of having them grow in my own (small) backyard ..... Haven't seen any this year (yet).
