Since doing my own poppy inventory (below), I walked past a house with some magnificent oriental poppy buds in the front garden

and a few days later a huge flower

I decided to do an inventory of my poppies. I haven't been able to plant many seeds this year so these are the result of self-seeding. All the poppies in my back garden are annuals: opium poppies (Papaver somniferum) and red / corn / field / common poppies (Papaver rhoeas).

Opium poppies (Papaver somniferum), in past years I've sown Lauren's Grape poppies so these could be those. The leaves are smooth lighter greyish-green.

they vary in size enormously, those above are in a large pot with lots of room, below in a crack on the patio and the edge of a  pot

this one is tiny

another small poppy self-seeded in a pot (with foxglove, verbena bonariensis and creeping yellowcress)

2 poppies self-seeding in this pot of saw-wort small plants

red / corn / field / common poppies (Papaver rhoeas), they have various common names, also vary enormously in size, these small ones have self-seeded in this pot

I've had one flower so far. They don't last long.

another couple of poppies blooming in that pot

a couple days later, more flowers in bloom

this poppy (on the right) has self-seeded in the Centaurea dealbata pot

this one is much more upright than the one above, something is telling me it's a poppy self-seeded in that pot in front of Rocky (the nepeta cataria (catnip) is on the right)

a better view of the bud on the poppy above

a few poppies which had self-seeded in the centaurea pots, I left them to allow them to bloom, so they were included when I repotted the centaureas
