Pretty Beach Fence On Cape Cod.


I love the Wild Virginia Roses growing all around the beach fences here on Cape Cod. They make it so summery and so pretty. (Click on blog link for full photo.)

I took this photograph looking north at Nauset Light Beach overlook. Just beautiful, don’t you think?

Beautiful Little Canada Mayflower Blooming on Cape Cod.


It is the season for the Canada Mayflower to bloom on Cape Cod. I have seen it on many of the trails in the past few days. If you hike Fort Hill, you can see it on the sides of the boardwalk. It is so pretty and delicate. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

Canada Mayflower is a small woodland plant, only growing 3′ – 6″ in May and June. Its 1/4″ flowers look like miniatureĀ  bottle brushes next to bright shiny leaves.

When the Mayflower blooms, you know that summer is right around the corner! Have you ever seen oneĀ  this year?
