Beautiful Hot Pink Stork’s-Bill Wildflowers Are Blooming All Over Cape Cod!

These small pink flowers, known as Stork’s-Bill, are growing all over Cape Cod. The lawn outside of the Eastham Visitor’s Center looks like a blanket of Stork’s-Bill wildflowers. They are a tiny,  3/4″ pink flower with 5 petals that grows from April through October, so you have plenty of time to see them.

Beautiful Spring Starflowers Are Blooming On Cape Cod.

I saw my first Spring Starflower the other day and boy, was it pretty! I had never seen one before. I thought it was another species when I took the photograph, so when I did a little research, I was in for a pleasant surprise. Another “first” here on Cape Cod!

Spring Starflowers are small perennials with lovely star-shaped, sweet violet scented flowers. They grow to be 3-6″ tall in mid to late spring, so you still have plenty of time to see them.


The Delicate Snowdrop Wildflower Bloomed On Cape Cod.

A few weeks ago, I posted a photograph of some Snowdrop wildflowers that hadn’t bloomed yet. They looked like snowdrops drooping down. And then a couple of weeks ago, I saw some Snowdrops that had bloomed. Oh my! They were gorgeous!

I had no idea they were so full and so beautiful. Have you ever seen a Snowdrop that had bloomed? It was first for me! Gorgeous don’t you think?

Pretty Yellow Fig Buttercups Are Blooming For Easter On Cape Cod.

I saw a blanket of yellow something on the side of the road so we stopped to investigate. There were lots of these beautiful little yellow flowers with 8 petals. They looked like Buttercups, but the Buttercups that I knew had just 5 petals while these had eight.

I did a little research and realized that they are called Fig Buttercups which are low-growing, hairless perennial flowering plants in the Buttercup family. They have fleshy dark green, heart-shaped leaves and distinctive flowers with bright yellow, glossy petals.

A  nice splash of bright color to wish you all a Happy Easter from Cape Cod!
