Vibrant Orange Trumpet Creepers At Fort Hill On Cape Cod.

The bright orange Trumpet Creepers at Fort Hill are just spectacular this year!  (Click on blog link for other photos.)

You can see in the 2nd photo how they got their name… they are shaped just like a trumpet!

They grow to be 12′ tall and bloom till September, so you still have plenty of time to see them by the side of the road going up to the overlook.

It was a stormy morning at Fort Hill, but the rain had stopped for a bit and someone rode their bike up the hill and parked it at the National Seashore sign. (Click on blog link for other photos.)

And then we couldn’t decide which one we liked best… what do you think?

Pretty Deptford Pink Wildflowers Blooming At Fort Hill On Cape Cod.

The tiny, hot pink Deptford Pink wildflowers are blooming all along the trails at Fort Hill. I’ve never seen so many!

One interesting fact that I learned while doing a bit of research: The name ‘Deptford Pink’ refers to the town of Deptford, England where the plant once grew in abundance.

Such a pretty, delicate wildflower… have you seen any yet this year?
