Went round to a mates place to hang out a couple of days ago and whilst out the back a patch which had recently, (4 months) ago been dug out with a bobcat between 1-2m deep had a whole bunch of these red poppies.


The soil is shit and nothing's been sown, (he hates gardening, hency why it's nothing's going too fast out there.)  ;)  I'm just really curious as to what variety they are. Is it possible they're from food poppies from a bread product?


The pods are pretty small as you can see. The middle of the flowers looked very yellow. I saw no black or dark colour in the middle. I know basically nothing about poppies though.
