Fireflies!

I love fireflies! It's one of those things that I don't usually think about. But this week, anytime I go outside during twilight, there are tons! They are beautiful, romantic creatures!

The other thing I realized this week - I have another memory from when I was really young. There is a mimosa behind my neighbor's house. As I was getting out of my car this week, I realized that I remembered the smell of the mimosa blooms. And I realized that the house we lived at when I was from 3 to 5 years old had a mimosa in the front lawn. It's always so unusual to find new memories from that house since I can only think of 3 or 4 memories from that time. It's a weird feeling.

Glad you realized you had another memory.
I do not remember the neighbor having a mimosa, or the one in the front yard.
But there was one in the back yard. It was the one that had the tree house in it. The tree was really big but not all the high off the ground. The tree house had a ladder that went up the tree and then a trap door in the floor. It also had a rope off one side. Maybe that will jog a few other memories.

Okay, well, I must have gotten the front lawn and back lawn mixed up. I remembered that we had a tree house, but I don't really remember anything about it.
