Naked Ladies are part of the Amryllis family.  They are also called Ayryllis Belladonna and Belladonnas.  These bulbs came up in the yard as volunteers, and they have bloomed since.  I really love these flowers, especially since they came for free in the yard.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That was in Shasta county, I haven’t seen any in Trinity county, but I may try to plant some.  I just learned that peonies can grow here and I had no idea!  California is so versatile!  Most people who are from other places thing everyone in California lives on the beach!  I am two hours away from the nearest beach, and it’s very very cold water!  The Pacific ocean in northern California, and the upper west coast is cold!  Many people who enjoy water sports wear wet suits.
