First firefly of the summer!

Yes, we spotted our first firefly for the season just a while ago! Which meant I had to boot up my computer (I try not to turn it on on Sundays) so I could access the Firefly Watch citizen science project and submit our observations.

As volunteer participants, now we need to watch our habitat once a week for 10 minutes, then submit the data.

Yesterday, I planted my sunflower seeds for the Great Sunflower Project. That's another citizen science project that monitors bee populations. Check it out! And don't forget to send photos of ladybugs you see in your garden to the Lost Ladybug Project.
