First firefly of summer
First firefly and it officially feels like summer. I will never get over the magic of the firefly, even after all these years. It seems they are an early summer phenomenon ; not something to be expecting on a regular basis. Tonight, as I took Teddy for his walk down the lane by our cape house, the rain fell gently, the fireflies occasionally lit up the dusky darkness and a few bats swooped overhead. The promise of a sweet summer hung in the air and a neighbors music filled the air. There is nothing better than the week leading up to the fourth of July. It is still quiet on the cape and there is time to relish the pure beauty of a summer yet to unfold.
