One of my favorite trails at Fort Hill is the trail that goes right down to the marsh. It is so pretty. You can see the birds and the boats and people clamming at low tide. You can even see Coast Guard Station in the background.
Pretty view, don’t you think?
It was a spectacular day for a hike at Fort Hill in Eastham on Cape Cod. I loved this photograph of the trees along the trail. There are so many places to walk or hike at Fort Hill, which is a part of the National Seashore.
Pretty, don’t you think?
When I saw this pretty blue Creeping Bellflower at Fort Hill on Cape Cod, it reminded me of a Parry’s Harebell wildflower out in Colorado. They look so similar, although this one is a bit larger.
The Creeping Bellflower has 5-petaled 1 to 1 1/2″ bell-shaped flowers that hang on one side of a tall stiff stalk. They spread by creeping or rooting. The plant grows from 1-3 feet tall from July to September on fields and roadsides, so you should be able to find one.
Have you ever seen a Creeping Bellflower?
I had never really seen Queen Anne’s Lace wildflowers when they are finished blooming and getting ready to seed. I posted a photograph of them blooming a few days ago at Fort Hill on Cape Cod.
They fold up into what looks like a little ball with all of the seeds drying on top. You can see the seeds in the photograph. When they are dry they will disperse the seeds with the wind.
Mother Nature is amazing, don’t you think?
Hiking at Fort Hill in Eastham on Cape Cod is such a treat. You never know what you will see and every time you go it is different. Different wildflowers, different butterflies, different birds, etc.
The other day I saw some wild Blackberries along the side of the trail.
Have you ever seen a wild Blackberry?
