The little purple and pinkish Beach Pea wildflowers are blooming all over the Cape. I’ve seen at them at Fort Hill and at most of the beaches.
The Beach Pea is a vine-like plant with many irregularly shaped 1″ flowers suspended above the plant. They bloom in June and July along the dunes and salt marshes, so you have plenty of time to see them!
Interesting fact: They got their name because their fruit resembles a garden pea. So pretty, don’t you think?
I was taking an early morning bike ride the other day over the salt marsh. It was so pretty with the sun just starting to come up in the sky. It was pretty cloudy so the sky is dark, but such a beautiful morning!
Love the two ducks that swam into the photograph…
Yesterday was a glorious day on Cape Cod with the temps in the low 70s. It was the beginning of the first really beautiful weekend all spring. The Kayayers and SUPs were taking advantage of this warm weather by paddling along the creek in the salt marsh. They looked like they were having a blast!
This was a beautiful, fiery red sunset over the salt marsh the other night. So pretty how the creek reflects the sky as it winds through the marsh grass. Love the colors!
I saw my first Osprey a couple of weeks ago and then this week, I saw two of them on the nest on the salt marsh. Such a familiar sight for summer on Cape Cod. I love it! Can’t wait to watch their babies grow and fledge!
Every time we walk from Doane Rock to Coast Guard Beach, we see this post in the creek by salt marsh near the bridge. It’s been there a lot of years. I wonder what it is from?
