We had to wait for the snow to melt this year before we could see the delicate, white Snowdrop wildflowers blooming on the hillside under the trees. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
1. “Snowdrops were named after earrings not drops of snow.
2. There are more than 2,500 varieties of snowdrop wildflowers.
3. They are symbolic of spring, purity and religion.
4. Snowdrops are one of the first flowers to appear in the new year. In the northern hemisphere snowdrops can be seen appearing as early as January, weather permitting. They usually flower between the months of January and April.”
After months of hard work, all of the dredging vessels at Rock Harbor are gone. The new poles are in and it almost looks like spring isn’t too far away… fingers crossed!
This Juvenile Bald Eagle was enjoying a fresh fish meal on this vacant Osprey platform overlooking the salt marsh.
I took a “double take” when we drove by this “nesting” platform and saw such a large bird on top. We turned the car around, got the cameras out and clicked away. It was pretty far out in the middle of the salt marsh, so it was hard to get a great photo.
I haven’t seen many Bald Eagles on the Cape and Phil had never seen one so this was a big treat!
This was another “picture-perfect” day to take a walk on Coast Guard Beach. It was just gorgeous with the sun’s reflection on the water. We were the first to walk the beach that morning… it is so cool when your footprints are the first footprints…
We were out driving around the other day looking at how high the tides have been when we saw this “dock to nowhere.” It looked so funny just sitting in the water…
Great reflection, don’t you think?
