Beautiful. So sharp with lovely rich colour.

thank you Jean for your kindness - it was the early sunlight which brought out the richness of the colour... unfortunately the wind had splattered pollen onto the petals...

I am not an expert but this looks like an Iceland poppy rather than a Californian poppy, which usually are orange and don't have prominent yellow stamens. The Californian poppy isn't a poppy really.

The paper-like deep red petals are exquisite here.

thank you for the correct name of this flower.. i bought the plant from a garden centre, it must have been mis-labled.. after reading your comments i checked on-line and you are quite correct. it is the Iceland Poppy - i have now re-titled it...
thank you, also, for the lovely comment and the "fave" on the image, very kind of you...
