Pretty Purple Beach Pea Wildflower On Cape Cod.

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?

The Kayakers And SUPs Were Out Yesterday On The Salt Marsh On Cape Cod!

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!
