Can you identify this poppy?

Chiltern seeds have some amazing forms of Papaver somniferum. There is even one with extra large pods for the flower arrangers.

My computer doesn't like that link either.

Gorgeous flower though.

The glaucous leaves and flower bud would indicate somniferum not orientale which has furry leaves.

It's an opium poppy. Papaver somniferum.

Let the seed pod go Brown and the holes at the top open before you collect seed. Store in a paper bag. Scatter next March where you want them to grow. There may be variation, but they usually come true.

They are annuals.

I thought Spirea but not sure of variety. Mine has flatter heads.

Plantain. Plantago major.   The roots are not that deep, lever them out.

Anyone know what this is?

You'll just have to have an hour off every month to deposit the cheque. On works time of course.

It is possible to set up the date of bank transfer  days , even weeks in advance , so there is no excuse.
