Poppy mystery

smnsmn Posts: 1

I have a 20 yr old oriental poppy which I divided last year. It is blooming like mad, is this unusual at this time of year?

I have heavy clay soil and my garden faces west.

    Lots of things are blooming out of season this year but I haven't seen an oriental poppy in flowerimage

    I realised yesterday that one of the pink rosebuds still flowering well is, in fact, a pink poppy.  The black centre gave the game awayimage
