Fireflies need leaf litter for their nursery. Don't rake! Use leaf mulch instead of processed wood mulch. "Here come real stars to fill the upper skies, And here on earth come emulating flies, That though they never equal stars in size, (And they were never really stars at heart) Achieve at times a very star-like start. Only, of course, they can’t sustain the part." 1928 West-Running Brook Fireflies in the Garden by Robert Frost

Less in bloom, but the EJC Arboretum is an awesome place for a cool summertime walk in the woods!
