“Shine little glow worm, glimmer . . . glimmer.” How many of you remember that old tune and seeing lightening bugs (or more commonly fireflies) growing up back east? I do. We knew we were deep in the middle of summer with the first signs of lightening bugs blinking off and on in the night sky. Off we’d go giggling and laughing as we chased them around our backyard.
I miss seeing them out west. We don’t get them at our elevation of 8,500′, although my daughter sees them where she lives in Colorado. So, it goes to show they’re out here, too, though not as common.
Are you able to see fireflies where you’re at this summer? Do you remember, as a child, playing and chasing them around in the fields on those hot, summer nights? They were fun times!
