I managed an amazing 5 hours (that never happens with 2 children)  in the garden today, still clearing leaves, cut plants back, general tidy up.

I found this plant, I'm wondering if it is a poppy ?

Does anyone have any ideas (I'm sure you do, you're always fab), thank you.

    Looks a bit like one - and it's got the little hairs - I'd wait and see image

    something more like a scabious  maybe? I don't see poppy there.

    Does scabious easily seed ?  I planted one nearby last autumn, would it be from that maybe ??

    Did you have any Knautia macedonica

    Don't think so nutcutlet, I have scabiosa pink mist. image

    It looks awfully like a weed but I can't remember its name. Is it figwort?

    Could be fleabane

    I think fleabane is what I was thinking of.image

    I was thinking of a big dark orangey/brown blowsy floppy oriental poppy a friend (now moved) used to grow - I'm sure the leaves looked like the pic ... but I may well be wrong image
