8.1.10, Sunday

Longfellow Cricket. I think I heard the first crickets of summer on August 1.
We moved into our house in the Longfellow neighborhood last September. The first night I was amazed how loud the crickets were. It was like we had moved out to the country! I think it might actually be grasshoppers making all the noise because I have seen a few of those around, but I like the ring that "Longfellow Cricket" has. Also, crickets are used as symbol of good luck, so I like that too. This was done with gouache.
