These bright orange and eggplant blackish color poppies are just gorgeous! They are really big too!  They are at the Highland Art Center in Weaverville, California.  Obviously, they have been growing for a very long time.

If you have time this weekend you should stop by and check out the flowers, they are beautiful!  You can’t just see them driving by, you have to get out and walk to the left of the art center. You really should stop by anyway.   The art center always has really nice handmade gifts, jewelry, art, great for birthdays, and what have you.

The Highland Art Center is a great place to enjoy some flowers in the spring, get some great art, jewelry, and lots of other handmade gifts!  Visit this weekend to see the Oriental Poppies!

California state flower is the poppy, Veroniqque, northern california flowers.

California Poppies blooming in Northern California

California’s state flower is the poppy.  They are bright orange, and yellowish color and bloom all throughout California and other states also.  The poppies bloom in the spring, summer and also the fall, so they are a lasting flower.  You are not supposed to pick the California poppy, and they don’t last long in the water anyway, or do well, so it’s better to just leave them be.

Naked Ladies bloomed and gone again.



My favorite, the naked lady, these beautiful flowers are just amazing.  So light and pink and a volunteer flower, that is just beautiful.  

 

Now we have them in two locations in the yard and quite abundant.  They are also known as belladonna lily, the naked lady, amarillo and amaryllis.
