# The Grasshoppers #

Last summer we had some visitors here. They used to sing on the trees and flied to our homes. They were the grasshoppers that sang all the time from dawn to midnight. I have never seen so many grasshoppers like last summer.

They reminds me the Aesop's fable "The Ant and Grasshopper". I don't know whether everyone knows this fable, so I'll tell you this story.

The grasshoppers spent the warm summer days singing on the trees while the ants worked to store up food for  winter.  When that season arrived, they grasshoppers begged for the ants for food, but the ants refused to give  them food, so they died of hunger. This story has been  used to teach children the proverb: to work today to eat tomorrow.

The grasshoppers visited us last summer and their songs were very beautiful. I hope you liked it!

Wishing you all a lively week!

Wishing you a Happy Easter to everybody! This is my little bunny disguised as a little dog! Just joking.
