The last day of May and it feels like the first day of summer. We went over to see Lyndy and came home late. It is a beautiful starry night, so I went out front and there were as many lightning bugs (fire flies) as there were stars. Don't remember ever seeing so many.
It seems like it has been May for a long time. So many things going on I guess. Today, was the last day of Boxerwood education programs for this year. I taught frogs and turtles. I took three groups of 3rd graders down to the ponds and I have never heard so many frogs all at once - mating season for Green Frogs. It was a whole orchestra.
There are many Painted Turtles at Boxerwoods, as well, but today I saw my first snapping turtle there. It was HUGE.
The sheep have been feeling a bit warm the last couple of days so I put their fan on for them in the barn. They have been laying low for much of the day so I imagine they will be out grazing for much of the night. I wonder if they will notice all the fire flies.
