This was such a pretty view looking out over Nauset Marsh toward Coast Guard Station from Fort Hill. You can see the sun trying to peek out above the clouds.
You can still see the beautiful deep blue Chicory wildflowers blooming along the roads, trails and out in the meadows. I took this photograph at Fort Hill.
A couple of interesting facts: The stemless flowers grow right on the stalk and each flower lasts only one day. I love the delicate stamen and pistils in the center.
Chicory blooms through October so you still have time to see it.
We were surprised to wake up to rain falling last Saturday morning, but decided to take a ride up to Fort Hill anyway. Three kayakers paddled by, unscathed by the cool, rainy weather. That sure is dedication!
All of a sudden the sun peeked out for just a minute, so Phil and I clicked away. He took a black and white photograph and I took one in color. What do you think?
