The Yellow Wood Sorrel is another wildflower that I had never seen before. It’s so much fun to learn the new wildflowers on Cape Cod. Most of them are so different from the ones from Colorado and the Rocky Mountains. I saw this one at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.
The Yellow Wood Sorrel is a small 5-petaled 1/2″ flower with 3 heart-shaped leaflets, similar to a Clover. They are common on Cape Cod and native and bloom from May through August.
I loved the little bit or orange around the center. Pretty, don’t you think?
