Hi Chrissy, I love to take a stroll at night in July in Truro. The fireflies light up alongside of the road, in the bushes, grass and trees. Truro in many places is wild and wooly. Not manicured. I think the lightning bugs like it that way! The other great thing is beach plums grow here. But they won’t be ripe til August. I have a source for jams and jellies and when I asked the owner/maker what her favorite was...& now I’m hooked. Have you ever tasted it?
Hi Sandy, Yes! I think the more wild spaces are where the fireflies like to be. We don’t see them anywhere but in the long grass. And how nice to have “wild and wooly” spaces. Our beach roses are blooming...haven’t tried the jelly, clearly I need to!
I'm just a tad bit jealous of everyone who lives where there are fireflies. I live in the western US where we do not have fireflies.
Many years ago, at my great-aunt's invitation, I arrived in Morgantown, West Virginia for a visit. She picked me up at the airport and as we were driving away, I thought I saw some little flickers of light. I wasn't sure at first, but then I wondered. Are these fireflies?? I asked, and she said yes. I was so charmed and delighted at seeing them for the very first time. I've only seen them one other time, years later, when we took our kids to visit Washington, DC. I was eager for my kids to see the fireflies too. The next time I'm in a place where I can see them, I will still be enchanted by them!
Hi Michele, No fireflies! I had no idea. They are magical. We’re talking our walks later just so we can see them!
