White-Breasted Nuthatch At Our Home On Cape Cod


This White-breasted Nuthatch is a regular at our home here on Cape Cod. I love how they walk up and down the trees looking for bugs.

We have had so many birds in our yard that we went out and bought another bird feeder so the birds did not have to “wait in line” for so long.  They do have good manners though, as they wait for one bird to leave before the next one flies in.

Have you ever seen a White-breasted Nuthatch?

The Orange And Yellow Bittersweet Is Abundant At Fort Hill On Cape Cod


You can see the orange and yellow Bittersweet berries on so many of the trails at Fort Hill on Cape Cod. It’s a vine that grows on the bushes and has such a pretty berry in the fall. It reminds me of my Mom who used to pick it each fall and make wreaths for our doors. They were so pretty.

I loved how you can see Nauset marsh and the Coast Guard Station in the background.

Yellow Common Winter Cress Wildflowers Are Blooming By The Salt Pond In Eastham On Cape Cod

I couldn’t believe it when I saw these pretty yellow Common Winter Cress wildflowers blooming along the trail at the Salt Pond on the National Seashore on Cape Cod. I thought all of the wildflowers would be long gone by now.

Common Winter Cress, which grow to 1-2 feet,  have 4 petals with flowers at the end of the upright stalks. The flowers are about 1″ and grow from May to September. Maybe because we’ve been having such a mild fall, they are still growing?

It was such a treat to see these yellow wildflowers growing along the trail so late in the season.
