Yellow Common Winter Cress Wildflowers Are Blooming By The Salt Pond In Eastham On Cape Cod

I couldn’t believe it when I saw these pretty yellow Common Winter Cress wildflowers blooming along the trail at the Salt Pond on the National Seashore on Cape Cod. I thought all of the wildflowers would be long gone by now.

Common Winter Cress, which grow to 1-2 feet,  have 4 petals with flowers at the end of the upright stalks. The flowers are about 1″ and grow from May to September. Maybe because we’ve been having such a mild fall, they are still growing?

It was such a treat to see these yellow wildflowers growing along the trail so late in the season.
