  • Fireflies light up the night for love

    Likely as children, we all collected fireflies in a jar and took them to bed to light up our rooms on a warm summer night. 
    I remember getting my parents to puncture the lid of a mason jar so the magical insects could breathe. Well, it turns out that all that light flashing was about love. So, this holiday weekend maybe take a second look at all that firefly flashing in a different light.

  • Way Back When

    10 years ago . . .

  • Toads are indicator species

    Earlier this season, as we worked on prepping and planting, we were curious about all the small holes we saw in the ground around the vegetable garden. Then it occurred to me one day when I saw several toads about that these were toad holes!  
    And, now it seems, that everywhere I step in the yard, vegetable garden and perennial beds there is a toad under foot.
    They manage to jump out of harm’s way (from a rapidly approaching foot or spade) just in the nick of time.
