You may call them fireflies, here we call them "lightening bugs". No matter what you call them they are fascinating and I find myself endlessly enthralled by their nightly dance. I saw a few this week and I a propelled back in time to my childhood. I remember hours of chasing, catching and releasing them.
This has been a week of beautiful NIGHTS....unseasonably cool a nearly full moon. I have enjoyed going to the barn at dusk and watching night set while my horses munch their supper. I actually got up a few nights ago thinking there was a barn light on, but the moon was so bright it just seemed so.
Take a moment tonight to gaze at the sky and if you have fireflies....maybe recapture your youth by grabbing a Mason jar and start chasin'!
