Enchanted Nights by Moderator Jennifer Emmett

We’ve had a bumper crop of fireflies in our East Coast backyard this year.

In the Outdoor Exploring section of National Geographic’s Classic Treasury of Childhood Wonders, author Susan Magsamen shares an activity: “Make a Firefly House.”

Have you been seeing lots of fireflies? Have your kids or kids you know been out catching fireflies this summer?

Here in Louisville, Kentucky there is a neighbor's backyard that for one night, each summer, the fire flies fly high in the apple, oak, maple and elm trees ... and by the tens of thousands echo thunderously their joy to be alive.

We approach ... set up lawn chairs ... and enjoy.

PS: Thank you 218 S Birchwood for keeping the the fireflies happy.
