Bright Orange Jewelweed Wildflowers Are Still Blooming On Cape Cod.

These little, bright orange Jewelweed wildflowers are tubular spotted flowers that dangle like pendants from a branch. (Click on blog link for 2nd photograph.)

Their flowers are only 1″ and bloom in shady  areas from July through September, so you don’t have much more time to see them. I saw these on the trails at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.

The Goldenrod Is Blooming And Beautiful At Fort Hill On Cape Cod.

The Goldenrod at Fort Hill is blooming and just gorgeous. Every time we stop at Fort Hill, there seems to be more Goldenrod blooming. It brings such pretty color to the fields and meadows this time of the year when everything is starting to dry up.

Gorgeous Black-Eyed Susan Wildflowers Are Blooming On Cape Cod.

I love that the Black-eyed Susan wildflowers are still blooming this late in the season. I have always loved Black-eyed Susan wildflowers as they remind me of my childhood in Connecticut and hiking the wildflower-laden trails in Colorado.

Such brilliant colors… and so many different varieties. Isn’t this one  a beauty? They bloom through October, so you still have a chance to see them.

Queen Anne’s Lace Wildflowers On Cape Cod.

Queen Anne’s Lace are such pretty wildflowers. The small, clustered flowers form a lacy, flat-topped head that look like a piece of lace… thus, the name Queen Anne’s Lace. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

When they have bloomed and are going to seed in the late summer, they are also called a “bird’s nest” as they fold up and look just like a birds nest.

They bloom from July through September, so you should still have time to see them.
