The Sound of Summer

Thursday, November 11, 2010
This might actually make you cringe, but I can't help that.

It's that time of year, when you live in the country, that you get used to seeing these . . .

Great big, loud, terrible country flies. Buzzing, buzzing - dive bombing and swooping in manic desperation to find something to land on or somewhere to escape.
I call them country flies, because they don't seem as pesky somehow as city flies, but that is probably more about perception than fact.
And unless I keep all the doors and windows closed - which might be considered sinful on a beautiful blue-sky sunny day, there's no way I can keep them out of the house. So we tolerate them, invest in flyspray and relish the fact that country flies means that summer has arrived.

We live rurally and get a lot of the same variety of fly - I agree, they're not so buggy - AND...they're reactions aren't so fast! I like to take to them with the vacuum pipe...and it makes me feel a little like a super hero. And one that saved myself some coin on the spray.

Oh we get them too! I really noticed the difference when we moved out here last November - neighbouring horses and cows equates to huge blowflies in summer!
