These Naked Lady or Bella Donna flowers are so beautiful, I love them. I never saw them growing up in Trinity County and only began to notice them mainly in Marin County. Some appeared in my Mother’s yard these past few years, volunteers. They moved from one side of the yard to another this year.

Oriental Poppies at the Highland Art Center, Weaverville, CA

Bright orange, reddish colored oriental poppies at the Weaverville, Highland Art Center, CA. They are gorgeous!
These beautiful flowers are at the Highland Art Center.

These poppies are magnificent!  They are bright orange color, with hints of red and a very dark purple black to them.  These particular flowers have been growing at the Highland Art Center in Weaverville, California, for many years. I haven’t seen any as large anywhere else in California, but I am sure they are out there!

These poppies usually bloom in May, or late May, so you have time to make it there this year.  If you visit Weaverville, California, and enjoy art, you should stop in at the Highland Art Center. They are located on Main street.  If you go in the spring, spring you will also see these wonderful flowers.

Also known as Papaver oreientale, these flowers are from the Caucuses of Turkey and northern Iran.  The are similar to ranuncula flowers, which are wonderful also.  I will have to go by the Art Center and see what they are looking like this year!

Easter Flower Bouquet with Peeps and Jelly Bellies

Easter Flowers with Peeps and Jelly Bellies.

I made these Easter arrangements and just now getting around to putting them on my site.  They were a big hit!  Very easy to make also!  Can hold flowers, or whatever you want to put in the vase.  I used pink peeps and pink jelly bellies, but you can use whatever color peeps you want   Also whatever color and flavor jelly beans or jelly bellies!

In California we tend to like jelly bellies!  Cause Jelly Belly is headquartered here. You can visit the Jelly Belly factory and see how they are made!

 

Beautiful light pink tulips arranged in my Easter pink Peeps and Pink Jelly Bellies, in the bowl, inside is another bowl that holds the flowers and water, keeping the peeps and jelly bellies dry.
Easter flowers, pink tulips.

 

 

You need a fishbowl type shaped vase, and also another vase to hold the water, and the flowers inside the fishbowl container.  After you put the Jelly Bellies in then put the peeps in facing outward and then carefully add the inside container for the flowers.  You must be careful not to get the Peeps or Jelly Bellies we as the color will run and the candy will melt from the water.

Easter holiday flower arrangement.

There you have it!  I made this just a couple days before Easter and you still have time to make one too!  Everyone will love it!  Also you can eat it after the holiday or put it in a zip lock bag (not the flowers of course) and save it for Easter holidays to come.  It might be susceptible to ants, so keep it in something.  That’s what my aunt does!

If you have any question please let me know!  Should be fairly simple, you just need to have a couple bowls and vases so that one can fit in another, and give room for the peeps and jelly bellies too!
