I saw my first pretty, little white Snowdrop flowers on the side of the road in Orleans on Cape Cod the other day. They are so delicate.
I couldn’t find them in my flower book so my friend Alice, who is a guru in flower identification, helped me out. Thank you, Alice!
Snowdrops, which are perennials, produce one small (1″ or less), white flower, which hangs down off its stalk like a “drop” prior to opening. When the bloom opens, the eye beholds 3 outer petals arching out over 3 inner petals. Snowdrops flower early in the year so you should plant them where you can easily see them, even under tree because they bloom before the leaves come out!
I might have to plant some Snowdrop bulbs at my new house. They are so pretty and such a treat to find this time of year!
It was a glorious day at First Encounter Beach in Eastham on Cape Cod. Perfect for taking a walk on the beach or just sitting on the many benches enjoying the spectacular scenery.
It doesn’t get much better…
The colorful buoys on the side of this garage in Orleans on Cape Cod are a sure sign that we live in a coastal town. You can see buoys and lobster pots everywhere.
This was especially colorful with all of the different kinds of buoys displayed outside for all to see and enjoy.
Looks pretty beachy, don’t you think?
It is such a treat to take a walk and see all of the flowers starting to emerge from the earth as the weather gets warmer and the days get longer. These little Crocuses caught my eye yesterday on the side of the road.
It sure is a sign that spring is almost here! I can’t wait!
This was such a pretty sunset the other evening at Meetinghouse Pond in Orleans on Cape Cod. The colors were so vibrant.
It’s so nice to have the days getting longer and the sunsets a little later. Spring is surely on its way!
I saw this beautiful sea shell on the beach on Cape Cod as I was taking a walk the other day. It looks like an oyster shell but I am not sure.
Does anyone know what kind of sea shell this is?
I guess it’s time to go out and get a book for identifying shells on Cape Cod!
