It was a gorgeous view from Fort Hill overlooking Nauset Marsh and out toward Coast Guard Station in the distance. The Goldenrod was in full bloom and so pretty!
The Trumpet Creeper wildflowers are prolific on Cape Cod now. You can see them everywhere. And, if you’re lucky, you may see a hummingbird sipping their nectar. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

Tansy is a flowering plant with small, round, yellow button-like shaped flowers that grow in clusters on top of a long stem. They are native to Europe and Asia but are now found in North America. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

Have you ever seen a Tansy wildflower? I saw these at the lower parking lot at Fort Hill.
