Remembrance

I’m not completely clear on how to distinguish the poppy varieties. This is possibly the Papaver rhoeas, which is used for Remembrance Day in the UK, but it could also easily be Papaver somniferum or orientalis: I’ve yet to read anything that really makes it clear to me, and when I do image searches all three varieties show this kind of flower.

In any case, I will post it today, on our Veteran’s Day.

Red Papaver, 4.9.18
