First Firefly!

YAY! Xris the Flatbush Gardener spotted fireflies last night!

I'm excited. 2 things I still get an incredible kick out of because we didn't have them in Hawaii, where I grew up - fireflies & snow.

My mother used to always tell us that snow wasn't that neat, it was pretty when it first fell but then it got all grey and yucky. Well, she was right, but the pretty part is SO pretty.

Fireflies, though - they're just the best.

Catching fireflies in jars was such a highlight of those Mainland visits.

I still can't resist catching them - but now my fireflying is purely catch-and-release!
