The bright yellow Celandine wildflowers are blooming all along the trails on Cape Cod. These are a small, 4-petal flower with very prominent pistil and stamens.
Pretty wildflower, don’t you think? Celandine blooms from May to July, so you still have time to see them! I saw these along the trails at Fort Hill.
The tiny, hot pink Deptford Pink wildflowers are blooming all along the trails at Fort Hill. I’ve never seen so many!
One interesting fact that I learned while doing a bit of research: The name ‘Deptford Pink’ refers to the town of Deptford, England where the plant once grew in abundance.
Such a pretty, delicate wildflower… have you seen any yet this year?
One of our favorite hikes is the Nauset Marsh Trail by the Visitor’s Center in Eastham. It has so much diversity that there is always something new to see… like the kayaker out in the river!
I love this bridge over the salt marsh. It is such a beautiful view. Have you ever hiked the Nauset Marsh Trail? Does this bridge look familiar?
There were so many pink Lady Slippers blooming along the Beech Forest Trail in Provincetown, I couldn’t decide which photograph I liked best. How often do you get to see 4 of these beauties next to each other in a row? What a treat!
Have you seen any Lady Slippers this summer?
This is the time of the year where you can see lots of different wildflowers along the Beech Forest Trail. If you start out on the boardwalk to the right, you are greeted with this gorgeous landscape view filled with Wild Irises.
It doesn’t get much prettier!
