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!

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!
