A Member of the Poppy Family

I found this plant blooming at the gardens at Algonquin College,
 and it's a good thing I looked it up on Wikipedia - this is not the sign for this plant!!
So all I can tell you is that it is about 18 inches tall,
and a member of the poppy family, and gorgeous!!!
I am linking today's post with Nature Footstep Blo-Ma.

Is it some kind of Meconopsis? Peep #1 keeps tryin' to grow various blue Meconopsis but she doesn't appear to be very good at it. She gets them to germinate quite well but I've never seen her grow one to bloomin' size.

It is very beautiful and I would never have guessed it was in the poppy family.

I grow these, Judy. They call them Spanish Poppies (Papaver rupifragum) but they also go by other common names.
