The 13 year cycle Cicadas are starting to come up out of the ground by the corner of our house. The whole area looks like it's moving, which is quite interesting to see. Cicadas are relatively harmless but when they land on you it can feel somewhat creepy seeing two red eyes staring at you.
Our large tree is slowly getting covered with Cicadas nymphs getting ready to molt. There's a goodly amount of their cast-offs at the bottom of our tree.
While I don't mind the Cicadas too much I think I will be happy to leave them behind for a wee while when I leave for Scotland next week.

And just to end on a pretty note. The weather has gotten hot all of a sudden and this morning my lilies bloomed.
