Wild Strawberry

Found in open grassy areas.  Often found on lawn edges of older homes.  Wild strawberries are very sweet and delicious, very small and seldom found.

Birds usually beat me to these tasty morsels !

New wild Flower Addition!

Check HERE for Beach Plum photos

Cape Cod is covered with flowers.  There are dozens upon dozens of wild flowers that have grown in since the glacier melted back 10,000 years ago. As ice melted back, Monomoy Island, Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard were left as Cape Cod neighbors.  As site development progresses, we will include interesting islands shots.

Over the years, residents have introduced hundreds of cultivated species into their gardens, window boxes and deck arrangements.  Many of these cultivated flowers show up along roads, trails and bogs - almost in a wild state, unappreciated except by the occasional butterfly.   Year after year they grow, unattended by anyone - always adding that extra touch of beauty to an already exotic, exciting and thoroughly enjoyable environment.
