The Scarlet Pimpernel Wildflowers Are Blooming At Fort Hill On Cape Cod.

Scarlet Pimpernel, tiny,  bright reddish-orange wildflowers, are blooming along the trails at Fort Hill. They are just beautiful and grow in large clumps that you can see in the 2nd photograph. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

Have you see the Scarlet Pimpernel this year?
