Poppy seeds or weeds?

wakeshinewakeshine Posts: 967

I sewed (sowed?!) some california poppies and some other poppies (can't remember which, havent got packet anymore) couple of months ago and not sure if these grass like things are any of them coming up next to a baby peony, or weeds? Does anybody recognise these as poppy seedlings? I also scattered delphinium seeds but I don't expect those to come up.

    Too early and they're too titchy to identify.

    1st and 2nd pics look like they could be poppies, don't know about the 3rd.

    and in pic 2

    The ones with forked leaves are Californian poppies., as nut says.

    Pictures 1 and 2 are definitely California poppies.
