This pretty Common St.-John’s-Wort wildflower was growing along the side of the parking lot here in Eastham on Cape Cod. It is so delicate with its many stamens.
Common St.-John’s-Wort grows to about 20″ tall with bright yellow flowers with have 5 petals that are are black-dotted on the edges. It blooms from June to August along roadsides and waste areas.
Have you ever seen a Common St.-John’s-Wort wildflower? Pretty, don’t you think?
I stopped at Boat Meadow Beach in Eastham on Cape Cod on the way home the other night and the sky look like this! Wow!
Such a beautiful sunset!
This is the first mushroom that I have seen in my yard here on Cape Cod. It is white and about 4″ in diameter with little raised brown spots on it.
I am not very good at identifying mushrooms. Does anyone know what kind of mushroom this is?
I was down at Boat Meadow the other day, enjoying a walk on the beach. I didn’t notice all the Semipalmated Plovers and Least Sandpipers on the flats at low tide. And then, there they were! So many of them!
I clicked away but was afraid to get too close in case I would scare them away. But such a treat! I had never seen any of them there before!
Have you ever seen them there before?
It’s been so warm lately I seem to be taking a walk after dinner… and I usually end up at Boat Meadow on Cape Cod Bay. I can’t think of a place I’d rather be. It’s always so gorgeous! Each time is unique unto itself with high tide or low tide or changing tide, sunny or cloudy, windy or calm, etc.
This evening was just gorgeous as the tides were going out and the clouds in the sky were spectacular!
The Common Milkweed wildflowers look like a ball of little flowers which you can find all over Cape Cod this summer.
Common Milkweed wildflowers have tiny purplish to pink flowers which grow in 2″ round clusters . They bloom from June to August in fields and roadsides. I saw these Common Milkweed on the side of the trail while hiking at Fort Hill in Eastham.
The first photograph shows a fully bloomed cluster and the second photograph shows one that is just blooming.
Very pretty and unique wildflower!
