The sound is hard to describe. It’s part buzz, with a little bit of a ring to it and maybe a high-pitched note. The cicada’s song in the surrounding woods. It’s a chorus like no other. And at the bend of the road—a house like no other… They say it’s a lemon. We must bring in an inspector. The cicadas are calling. I love it!


  1. The house is not a lemon, it is a gem, or a peach.

  2. Best of luck, I hope it turns out to be what you want. And if it is, I am looking forward to hearing more about it and the woods.

  3. WOW!!!

    Well, we're all waiting with baited breath!


  4. What a lovely house.:)
    Hugs from Mette.

  5. It looks a lovely welcoming home great mantle for decorating . Why is it a lemon?

  6. The song of cicadas... Being up north, when I hear them sing, I know it is hot, hot, hot. :-)

    How can a *lemon,* look so wonderful?!? Oh I know. There are lots of places, *underneath* as it were, where problems can hide. And an inspector is a necessity. -sigh-

    But I so hope that all will be well, to purchase it. If it is your heart's desire.

    Oh my, look at that porch! Oh my, oh my, oh my! -happy sigh-

    Hugs, full of warm wishes,

  7. Cielo, trust that all will work out as it was meant to. The cicadas are singing in the trees here in Michigan, too, a hallmark of warm late summer days. Joanie (from Michgian)

  8. Love the rhythm of cicadas... They sound like fall... Good luck with the inspector. It sure looks like you would love it, but glad you are being cautious... Hugs from Missouri.

  9. It looks darling! And it's so nice to be able to hear nature. Best wishes regarding the house!

    Blessings, Edie Marie

  10. A lemon? Really? Such a pretty lemon. I hope the inspector is thorough. It might have something to do with being in a depression, some homes end up with water drainage issues. Good luch finding the perfect home.

    And I know that sound well. All I have to do is open a window or door. There is the tree frog sound, too.

    I hope you will learn to love living in the south as much as I do.

  11. I love the house and I do hope that it passes inspection. I think you would love it there. Can hardly wait to see your style there.
    Good luck.

  12. What a gorgeous home, Cielo. You will create magic & beauty within ...
    TTFN ~

  13. Hope this charming home can become yours if the inspector says it is worthy!

    Have you said what part of the world you'll be living in?

    Hugs from Virginia!

  14. I think it's very pretty, and love the porch! Woods behind....perfect!

  15. Hello Cielo, I was just wondering what kind of house you'd find and here this is. I certainly hopes it works out for you - I love the song of the woods here in the South - there'll be much for you to enjoy. Love the porch! Have a wonderful week,

  16. What an adorable home, Cielo! Why are they saying it's a lemon? It's clean, airy, white and bright and certainly updated. :) What a great find!!! Hope that it works out for you, sweetie!
