The Bearberry Are Blooming In Wellfleet On Cape Cod

Bearberry shrubs are starting to bloom here on Cape Cod. Bearberry is a trailing, evergreen shrub. Its flowers are tiny white or pink bells, clustered at the branch ends. Its leaves are glossy,  leathery and paddle-shaped. In the fall these little flowers will turn into little red berries.

Have you ever seen Bearberry? When we lived in Colorado, Bearberry were known as Kinnikinick. Pretty little plants…love the bell-shaped flower. What do you think?

 

Greater Yellowlegs Courting At Boat Meadows Pond On Cape Cod

There is a little pond at Boat Meadows in Eastham on Cape Cod that seems to have a lot of activity on it. Every time I walk by there, something is going on.

These two Greater Yellowlegs were courting the other evening. The male would chase the female around and around the pond, and then she would fly across the pond and he would follow her. It was pretty exciting to watch!

There is a little pond at Boat Meadows Beach which is so pretty. As I was walking by the other day a little bird walking along the edge caught my eye. It was pretty far away, but it looked like a Greater Yellowlegs.

Pretty view, don’t you think? With Cape Cod Bay in the background and the pretty clouds in the sunny sky.
