It's time for rice planting. Most rice paddies have been flooded already. My apartment is surrounded by MANY rice fields.  While this is a beautiful sight almost all year round, it's quite horrible in June and July. As soon as there's water in the paddies, frogs are coming. The frogs are tiny and cute, but EXTREMELY noisy creatures. Having a lot of rice fields around me, means there are also a lot of frogs and thus a LOT of noise.
