Corn, field or Flanders poppy. This one is orange, not red and self-seeds every year. I think it is an escapee from a packet of variety Angels Choir I once sowed though none of the fancy ones came up. Isn't that just the way?! I see Thompson and Morgan offer a pure white variety which is tempting for next year.
It was a devil to photograph because even on the stillest day when every other plant seems static, these long-stemmed, femmer (Geordie word meaning fragile, delicate) poppies would insist on swaying about.
