More spring sightings...

Maybe this should be early summer sightings.
I walked outside at dusk, and in the woods next to my house, there must have been 50 fireflies!
I have not seen so many in one place at one time!
It was a sight to behold.
I wish I could have taken a photograph.

    Zman,
    But don't you get to see something I have never seen--- yet?--I wont say never-cause I may one day, but the northern lights?....
    Or are you too far "south", if that is such a terminology in Alaska?

    Springtime in GA!
    We have actually had a rather cool one. It never reached 70 degrees yesterday.

    Here's some pics, if it slows down the page.....lemme know and I will do it another way.

    I LOVE SPRING!!!!!!! Although I lost three baby bunnies last night and am in deep mourning, its still a beautiful day!

    Best to all at Roadfood.

    Lawnmowers. Meadowlarks. Coyotes howling at midnight, and the smell of wet pastureland after dark. I LOVE early spring.

    Plus we had snow night before last. The front range is a funny funny place.

    It's been cool and rainy and we still need to turn on the heat in the evening, and it's too cool to put out any of the seedlings I started indoors.

    But last week our cherry tree bloomed, along with azaleas,tulip trees and crabapples and our dwarf irises. The daffodils are almost gone. And this week the dogwoods and lilacs popped.

    Other sign of Spring in my town is sailboats on the lake.

    My rosebushes are starting to bloom, and the Mandalay Cats are enjoying Springtime Feline Theater, a/k/a watching birds at the bird feeder. We have a huge red-headed woodpecker and a family of cardinals that have been coming since we put the feeder up three years ago, and seeing them arrive makes me glad to see another spring.

    Actually, it made me think of the short movie featuring Bambi, and I think the spring selection from the Peer Gynt suite, and it's all so sweet and light, and suddenly WHAM -- down comes the foot of Godzilla and smashes Bambi flat.

    Anyone know what I'm talking about?

    We just got buds on our trees, but no leaves anywhere and no flowers. But we are putting the camper on the truck this afternoon........wishful thinking I guess.

    I'm starting to see more women in bikinis walking down the street towards the beach. Yep, it's definitely spring here in Long Beach!

    I was kidding too, Xannie. I just found it delightful the way you juxtaposed your comments with the previous ones.

    Love that. I also, have several--scratch that. LOTS of Red heads in the trees at my place. And many many cardinals, however, I have seen more males than females lately. I wonder why?
    Are the females nesting with little eggs already?
    The sound outside my front door is birdie symphony.
    It is such a lovely sound.
    Very refreshing. Whatever type of bird that is wide awake late night, just sings and sings, and awaits answers. I whistle back and they try another tune, and I sing back, and they just keep on singing to me. It is very peaceful to hear them talking to what they think is a fellow bird.
    They try to trip me up by changing notes and pitches, and I just keep on whislting back to them. I wonder if they know it is a human and not a bird talking back to them..It is such a peaceful feeling talking to the birds in my neighborhood.
    It makes me feel happy.
