sweetness and light or femme fatale?

Last night I saw the first firefly of the season. Two nights ago, talking over a lovely dinner with special friends, the subject came up. To me, fireflies are one of the magic things about where I live.

I received a text last night from the same friends saying that the first fireflies were in their garden down in the valley. We waited patiently here, a Kiwi/Rome friend and I, until, finally, she was able to see her first firefly. There was only the one, but one is enough to know the magic!

If I cut my grass soon they will come in droves. Femme fatale? Yes, not me, but the firefly! Read this to see why :-)

Today, once again, I am grateful for fireflies.
