One of the things I love most about living on a farm is the peace and quiet. I guess I don't take much notice of the familiar sounds, just as city dwellers don't take much notice of traffic noise. I hadn't even heard the milk tanker (which goes past every day) rumbling past my house so was surprised when I looked out and there it was sitting by my driveway, broken down. It must have been there for ages because the repair vehicle had already arrived.
But a helicopter does not arrive to spread fertiliser every day - I hear that!.
If a tractor goes up the road I probably won't hear it, even though they are quite noisy.
But when my granddaughter goes putt-putting past on her little bike - I hear that!
What are some of the other sounds the might get my attention?
Horses talking might do it.
The happy sound of children laughing and paddling? Yep, for sure.
And when the grand-daughters crank up the music and sing? No doubt about it, I hear that!! That is the sound I love!
I'd like to do Nan U's 'blind hike’ sometime. Maybe I will on our next long weekend when I will be touring further north with a friend. Will have to remember to pack a blindfold (but I'll leave the silk scarf at home in case he thinks I'm too kinky)! and wander around noticing what I hear and take pictures pointing in the direction of the sound. Sounds (??) like fun actually. Thanks for this topic, Nan U. It really had me thinking about what I hear as opposed to all the sounds around me that I don't actually hear.
Wonder what the rest of the FSO team came up with! Check them out here.
