The heart of the homestead!
Earlier this spring, before the bugs arrived!
The soft sound of my husband mowing the lawn with our electric lawn mower excites them. In fact, they nicker when he gets it out, since he empties the grass clippings in the paddock for them to devour.
Free power from the sun!
Vehicles go by more on the week-end or people partying by the creek across the road at night. Of course, we run a generator during the day when the sun is not doing its job, so they are quite used to that also. I think it bothers me more than them. For the most part, it is a very quiet, peaceful way of life for all of us.
