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.)

Did you know that the Scarlet Pimpernel flowers open only when the sun shines, and even close in overcast conditions?

Have you see the Scarlet Pimpernel this year?

Beautiful Northern Crescent Butterfly On The Trail At Fort Hill On Cape Cod.

This is the first Northern Crescent butterfly I’ve seen this year and he sure is a beauty! Look at those vibrant colors!

He was hanging out right on the trail as we walked by, and was very accommodating, waiting for us to take our photographs before moving on.
