Red Horned Poppy

By EAS
Though the Yellow Horned Poppy may well be familiar to some who will have found it growing by the sea shore, this is the Red version. It's also a wildflower though much less common. Several years ago we had a large wildflower meadow here. Seems silly saying this, but our soil was too good and eventually the beautiful annuals died out but a few have held on, popping up not in what was the meadow but in the shrubbery next to it and I have simply left them to get on with it! This is one of those and always welcome.

Thanks to all who looked in, voted/commented on my precious posting.

This is gorgeous Ann. I know the yellow variety from Dungeness where it grows prolifically but I didn't even know there was a red one.
