Pretty Orange Jewelweed Wildflowers Are Blooming On Cape Cod.

The pretty Jewelweed wildflowers, also known as “Spotted Touch-Me-Not” wildflowers are such a unique wildflower. They have tubular orange flowers that dangle like pendants. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

The flowers are small, only 1 inch, while the plants grow from 3-5 feet in wet and shady places. I saw this Jewelweed on the Silver Spring Trail Loop at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.

Interesting Fact: It got its name “Spotted-Touch-Me-Not”  because if a ripe pod is touched, it splits open and shoots seeds four to six feet away from the plant.

The Iconic Lobster Pot In Provincetown On Cape Cod.

“The Lobster Pot is a Provincetown Tradition and the iconic neon lobster sign has guided generations of guests to our door.   People come from around the world to experience our fresh seafood, an amazing view of Provincetown Harbor and outstanding Cape Cod hospitality!

The McNulty family took over operations in 1979 with the goal of providing an authentic Cape Cod dining experience in a comfortable setting. Focused on quality food and supported by  impressive service, the Lobster Pot is an institution like no other and part of what makes Provincetown so special.”

The Lobster Pot is a definite “must” when you come to P’town! Have you ever been there?
