Is there anything more magical than fireflies on a summer night? Photographer Yume Cyan captured what looks like hundreds of them in this series of long exposure photos, taken in a forest in Japan. I pretty much want to live in these images.

Have you heard about the new nature documentary North America? I don't have cable so I hadn't heard a thing about it until my friend Kate introduced me to it last weekend (and we stayed up into the wee hours of the morning watching the first three episodes). It's similar to shows like Planet Earth but focuses on, as the title would suggest, just North America. The landscapes are gorgeous, but the footage they capture of the animals is insane.
From giant jellyfish to chipmunks fights to a one-eyed bobcat (yes, really), nature is totally mind blowing.
The Discovery Channel did not pay me to say any of this, but they should have for as much as I've been talking about this show lately.

Oops. Somehow, I let weeks go by without blogging. But I've had some fun weekends in the meantime, filled with ice cream and secret garden wandering, so I thought I'd smash them into one post and make an effort to not let weeks go by again. Because it's nearly officially summer, and there is plenty to talk about. Popsicles and weekends away and sunsets and rooftops, I hope.
