Poppies are indigenous to your area?

I would say this one possibly is but not sure about the others

The first one reminds me of an oriental poppy.

Excellent shots. I like to see a load of rogue poppies that have seeded themselves in a rape field. The contrast between the startling red and dazzling yellow makes for a great photo.

That’s interesting. I’ve been reading John Lewis-Stempel’s books, in particular one about traditional farming practices in England called The Running Hare where he talks about poppies (and other wild plants) growing in corn fields in the past.  I suspect the author would also take pleasure in “rogue poppies” in a canola field like David.

 Flanders Poppies are used to commemorate Remembrance Day here in Australia so I assumed they were native to Flanders not England. They are always red not pink/purple like your second photo.
