Firefly Dreams

If you've read my sidebar, you would know that seeing fireflies is something I've always longed to do. In my youth, I'd often stare up at the stars, mesmerized by the multitude of those fixed points of light that illuminated the night sky. How much more enchanting would it be to witness the magical dance of fireflies on a warm summer night! To be honest, I don't know if I'll ever have the chance in this lifetime to witness such a spectacular sight. At least there are pictures like the one below to satisfy somewhat.


Then, there is this faux firefly jar! I think I may have to purchase this and place it in my son's bedroom. Then, both he and I can dream of fireflies together.

The fireflies are on their way to your little one's room to light both your dreams...

A little gift from his uncle and auntie who thinks of him often.

What a delightful post! The photo you found looks magical.

What!! You two spoil us way too much! You shouldn't have, but am very thankful. It is a sweet and unexpected surprise! I can't wait to put it up in the little guy's room.

I thought fireflies were everywhere! They put on an amazing show in our garden every summer evening. Sometimes one will get in the house and when all the lights are out, he will shine like a searchlight! I would send you some if I could!

PT&E,
You're so fortunate to live in a region that allows you to enjoy this natural phenomenon! The closest I ever got to ever seeing them was on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland. Enjoy your fireflies for me!

Jean, Hi! New to your blog and loving it! I love this post and the beautiful photos, as it brings me such lovely memories of the 2 short years we lived in Atlanta. We had so many fireflies there! Our first summer we rented a house boat for two weeks, on Lake Lainier. We had the best time chasing fireflies at night. The children had never seen real fireflies so it is something they still talk about! Thank you for this post and the lovely pictures! I cannot wait to show my family your post!
