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.


Hilarious Seagull On Car Roof At Fort Hill On Cape Cod


We were just finishing a little hike on one of the trails at Fort Hill in Eastham on Cape Cod when we saw this car at the top parking lot with a Seagull perched on the roof. I don’t think the driver knew it was there, but everyone walking by did. The Seagull just stood there and paraded around on the roof, enjoying the beautiful scenery and all of the attention.

I clicked away as it was so cute. One of the cars stopped on the way out and asked if we had seen the guy’s license plate. I say, “No.” He said there was a Seagull on the license plate.

How funny is that! So I went back and clicked away again. Too funny! (I deleted the number on the license late…)
