Delicate White Lilies Of The Valley Wildflowers Along The Trails On Cape Cod.

The little, white Lilies of the Valley are blooming all over the trails on Cape Cod. You might see one here or there and then a whole group of them which is so pretty. Such pretty little bell-shaped flowers hanging from the stalk.

Have you seen any Lilies of the Valley wildflowers this year?

 

Pretty Purple Beach Pea Wildflower On Cape Cod.

The little purple and pinkish Beach Pea wildflowers are blooming all over the Cape. I’ve seen at them at Fort Hill and at most of the beaches.

The Beach Pea is a vine-like plant with many irregularly shaped 1″ flowers suspended above the plant. They bloom in June and July along the dunes and salt marshes, so you have plenty of time to see them!

Interesting fact: They got their name because their fruit resembles a garden pea. So pretty, don’t you think?

The Beautiful White Starflowers Are Blooming On Cape Cod.

The delicate, white Starflowers are blooming all along the Cape Cod trails and are just gorgeous! The flowers are only 1/2″ to 3/4″ while the plants only grow to about 6-8 inches. You can find them on the trails in the cool, dry woods.

So pretty, don’t you think? Have you seen a Starflower this spring?

 

Pretty Pink Lady Slipper On Cape Cod.

I  knew it was that time of the year when the pink Lady Slippers bloom, so I was on the lookout on the Beech Forest Trail in Provincetown. It was the perfect place for them to grow. And then there it was… on the side of the trail.

So pretty, don’t you think? Have you seen a Lady Slipper this year?

Beautiful, Dark Bluish-Purple Myrtle On Cape Cod.

This time of the year, you see Myrtle wherever you go on Cape Cod. It is such a pretty ground cover along the sides of the roads as well as in people’s yards. It adds such a vibrant color. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

I took this photograph just walking around the neighborhood. The leaves are a shiny, deep green color while the bluish-purple flowers are about 1″.
