The Crown Vetch wildflowers were so pretty on the trail from Doane Rock to Coast Guard Beach. These pink and white bi-colored flowers form 1 1/2″ golf ball size clusters at the end of a stalk and grow 1-2 feet. They make a very pretty ground cover from June through August.
Have you ever seen Crown Vetch?
It was fun to see this kayaker with a fishing pole attached to his kayak launch at Rock Harbor at 6:15 the other morning. The tides were high and the conditions were right.
I sure hope he caught something!
It was a beautiful evening for a walk at Fort Hill in Eastham. Through the abundant pink Everlasting Pea wildflowers in the meadows, you could see a 3-masted sailboat sailing across the horizon going from Nauset Beach toward Coast Guard Beach. It was gorgeous with Nauset Marsh in the foreground!

I saw this gorgeous Spicebush Swallowtail butterfly feeding on a Butterfly Plant at the high school the other day. I thought it was just magnificent with the orange flowers in the background.
Spicebush Swallowtail butterflies are 3 1/2″ to 4 1/2″ in wingspan making them a large butterfly. They are so different in coloing when their wings are open and when their wings are closed.
So pretty, don’t you think?
It was a beautiful morning walk from Doane Rock to Coast Guard Beach, part of the National Seashore. The sun was shining and the temps were perfect.
I loved this photograph of the lifeguard chair on the beach before the crowds descended and with the surfers in the background. What do you think?
The fields at Fort Hill in Eastham are filled with wild Everlasting Peas and they are so pretty as they dot the meadows. They are such a simple but elegant wildflower… one of my favorite’s. They grow all summer long so you should see them if you stop by.
Have you seen a wild Everlasting Pea this summer?
