The Queen Anne’s Lace Wildflowers Are Gorgeous At Fort Hill On Cape Cod

There are fields and fields of Queen Anne’s Lace wildflowers at Fort Hill in Eastham on Cape cod. I have never seen so many there before.

Phil took this photograph of me as I was clicking away. Such a gorgeous day!  And the wildflowers were spectacular!

White Campion Wildflower At Fort Hill On Cape Cod

The White Campion wildflowers are blooming all over Fort Hill in Eastham on Cape Cod. They have a whitish to pinkish flower that opens at night and on overcast days. How interesting…

The 5 petals, which are 1 to 1 1/2″,  are so deeply notched that they look like 10 petals. White Campions bloom from June through August so you can still find them on roadsides , fields and open areas.

The Beautiful Monarch Butterflies Are Back On Cape Cod

The colorful Monarch butterflies are back on Cape Cod. They search for Milkweed plants to feed on which Cape Cod has plenty of. I saw this Monarch while hiking at Fort Hill in Eastham a couple of days ago.

Monarch butterflies are just beautiful with orange above with black veins and white spotted margins. Below is more of a  yellow-orange color. The head and body ate black with white spots.

This Monarch was feeding on a Milkweed plant out in the field. You can see his beautiful coloring. Have you seen a Monarch this summer?

Beautiful Everlasting Pea Wildflowers At Fort Hill On Cape Cod

The hot pink Everlasting Pea Wildflowers at Fort Hill are gorgeous and growing abundantly in the fields. They look like blankets of pink  in the distance.

The Everlasting Pea is pink, and sometimes purple, with irregular-shaped flowers. The flowers are about 1″ on a sprawling plant that grows 3-4 feet on roadsides and meadows.

Have you ever seen an Everlasting Pea? Pretty, don’t you think?

Pretty Blue Chicory Wildflowers At Fort Hill On Cape Cod

Bright blue Chicory wildflowers are blooming all over Fort Hill on Cape Cod. Their intense blue color makes them easy to spot on the sides of the trails or in the fields.

Chicory grows on a stiff stalk and has numerous 1 and 1/2″ stemless flower heads with fringed petals.  These bloom for only one day  from June to October.

The part of the Chicory that always catches my eye are the exquisite stamens and pistils in the center. They look like little blue rods with a lasso at the top. Just beautiful!
