HAPPY DAYS . . . Fireworks, East Longmeadow, MA, July 3, 2011

The eastern skies of East Longmeadow, Massachusetts, were lit with works of fire invented in the 7th Century by the Chinese (even Farther East)  to scare away evil spirits. 
Rather than frighten people away this week, the fireworks attracted thousands of what appeared to be fire worshipping folk gazing in awe towards East Longmeadow's eastern skies.

With all that light, wonder if we missed any shooting stars -- probably not; they start appearing in the skies of Massachusetts in August.
To be fair, the excitement with which Marash Girl greets a glimpse of one shooting star far exceeds the excitement of watching an hour of fire works!

  2. @KarounHi, Karoun. Thanks for the compliment. Actually, it's my favorite as well. Reminds me of fungii that used to grow on the sides of some of the trees on our land on top of Wilbraham Mountain. What were they called? Bracket Mushrooms?
