I've never seen this before. A couple of more poppies are trying to bloom. This one is deformed. Have to wait to see what the other bloom looks like. We put some compost tea made from my wife's white bread compost on the cut-back poppies last week. Could that have done it? This is very late in the year for poppies to try to bloom in my experience. Art Appraiser's catnip is in the background.
