It’s been fun looking for new and different kinds of photographs here on Cape Cod.

Outside the front door of the home that we are renting until our home is built is a Clematis that has gone by. It was quite large and climbing up the light post.

I never got to see it in bloom. But, I loved these two photographs of the Clematis as it starts to seed and then when it is ready to disperse its seeds.

So delicate…

And 2 weeks after I took those 2 photographs, a new flower bloomed. Exquisite colors, don’t you think? It’s still summer!

The Hydrangeas are blooming and magnificent on Cape Cod!

When we lived in Colorado, most of the flowers had died off by mid to  late August, so this is such a treat to not only see flowers in  September but some are just starting to bloom.

I was taking a walk down by Nauset Beach in Orleans when I saw this Hydrangea by the side of the road. I thought it was exquisite!  The colors are just amazing.

The Paul Fulcher Memorial Bonfire at Nauset Beach in Orleans on Cape Cod last Saturday was an amazing event!

The bonfire  was part of Orleans Pond Coalition’s “Celebrate our Waters” annual event. This entire event was held on Friday through Sunday. It was unbelievable! There were events for everyone… from museum tours to hikes to bird watching to sailing to paddle boarding or kayaking and boat tours of the harbor and much more. These events were all day and free!

We went down to Nauset Beach about 5:00 on Saturday evening and had a picnic on the beach while we listened to the Lower Cape Concert Band.

Over 3,000 people came to the bonfire which was lit just after dusk. It was so much fun and people were having a blast!

If you didn’t make it this year, put it on your calendar for next year and don’t miss Orlean’s “Celebrate our Waters.” It’s a great weekend event!
