Fireflies in the Yard


I have always been afraid of bugs. As a kid I hated picnics and other outdoor activities because of it. There was one exception and that was lightning bugs or fireflies¬† as some call them. I guess because everyone wanted to catch them in a jar, I controlled my fears to join in the fun. I still try to avoid flying creepies but I am always happy to see the fireflies. They signify summer and remind me of a time when the most I had to do was catch them and let them go.¬† I remember years when I didn’t see them but right now my yard is full! When I went to water the veggie garden tonight I couldn’t believe how many were flying around. Happy summer!
