Yellow Wildflower At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary On Cape Cod


I saw this pretty yellow wildflower at  the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary a few weeks ago. I didn’t know what it was. So I came home and researched my wildflowers books and the internet and I still do not know what kind of wildflower it is.

Can anyone help me with its identification? It would be much appreciated! It is so pretty.

Fall Reflection At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary


The leaves are starting to turn colors as the days are getting shorter and cooler. I loved this photograph of the reflections from the  Silver Spring Trail at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. There were so many Lily Pads in the water, but their flowers had gone by quite  a while ago.

The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary has so much to offer. We see something new each time we go. It is such a treat!

Brown Knapweed Is Still Growing On Cape Cod


The Brown Knapweed is blooming all over Cape Cod. Many regard it as an invasive wildflower, although it is very pretty.  The 1 to 1 1/2″ flowers are pinkish purple with thistle like heads that grow from June through September.

I took this photograph while hiking at Fort Hill in Eastham but you can see them along the sides of the roads and trails.
