Just the back yard!? Nah, I want the front and side yards landscaped in natives too.

First Firefly

I just saw my first firefly--or lightning bug as I grew up calling them. :)

I always associate their blinking near the Fourth of July--a week or so earlier...so, I guess, he is right on schedule.  No picture...not that I didn't try a video in the dark, but lost patience when if flew out of my field of view.

Our fireflies showed up last week. I don't try to get video, either, but one evening I just had to go sit in the yard with them. Their season is so short.

I usually start seeing this time of year in Wisconsin as well.

Sorry I'm so late in publishing comments and responding. We've had a extremely busy couple of weeks.

Rebecca, I didn't realize that their season was so short. I hope I didn't miss it while we were away.

Nicholas, cool that you see them too...from what I understand, the West coast doesn't have them...at least my cousin from Oregon was always thrilled to see them here at family reunions since he never saw them at home.
