Hi Jo, the top one looks like a poppy but the bottom one isn't violet.
Not sure about the bottom one, it's quite prickly to look at. Too prickly for Prunella vulgaris, selfheal, which I thought it was til I enlarged it.
It's very much like self heal though
Perhaps if I look closely at my selfheal I'll find it's more prickly than I thought
Top one is definitely an oriental poppy.
I stroked my selfheal this afternoon, it's smooth
Would definitely agree that one first one us a poppy. Hope it's a lovely colour when it flowers. Congratulations!
Also agree top one oriental poppy , not sure about other
Your second picture has self heal flowers Jo. I think it's selfheal.
Mine aren't bristly like that
hope you have more luck with oriental poppy than I have - it makes a fantastic plants, many tall stems and huge flowers which open the day before a rainstorm every year, which smashes them down. They should be wonderful, but they seem to have a death wish.
My Oriental Poppy flowered in January one year! Just one bloom but then got frosted. Flowered again properly in June same year.
