Description:

A solitary specimen growing on derelict land used by an animal feed centre. It was just past its best when I saw it two days ago so went back today to photograph the long smooth seed head. A lovely double orange poppy but why just one?

Thanks for the i.d. Duxbury

Thanks for the i.d. Duxbury Rambler - it seems that they too come in single and double form. I wonder if some of these isolated plants arise from bird seed especially given the location? I will edit accordingly.
