Beautiful Little Canada Mayflower Blooming on Cape Cod.


It is the season for the Canada Mayflower to bloom on Cape Cod. I have seen it on many of the trails in the past few days. If you hike Fort Hill, you can see it on the sides of the boardwalk. It is so pretty and delicate. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

Canada Mayflower is a small woodland plant, only growing 3′ – 6″ in May and June. Its 1/4″ flowers look like miniatureĀ  bottle brushes next to bright shiny leaves.

When the Mayflower blooms, you know that summer is right around the corner! Have you ever seen oneĀ  this year?


Exquisite Lesser Stitchwort Wildflower At Fort Hill On Cape Cod!


If you look very closely along the trails at Fort Hill, you will see this tiny, little white wildflower among the tall grasses on the side of the trail. It is smaller than a dime and very easy to miss. And then, if you get very close to it, you will see its delicate beauty… those pink stamens are just exquisite!

I think it is one of the prettiest wildflowers that I’ve seen. What do you think?
