I've been watching, these last few nights. It's been so hot, I was sure I'd see one -- at least one -- but the nights remained dark, save for the stars and the waxing crescent moon.

But, tonight...tonight they were there! The first fireflies of the year. First one, then another, twinkling along the pines edging our yard. When I see them in the woods below our house, farther away, they remind me of little fairies...tiny Tinkerbells flitting about in celebration with the night.

Summer is officially here.
