Volunteer flower

Hello, everyone.

The garden was blessed with a very striking volunteer flower this spring.

Argemone
This is the annual Prickly Poppy. (It's not really a poppy, those are perennials that won't grow at all in this climate.) The leaves are unbelievably prickery, and the sap is smelly and yellow. But the flower is gorgeous.
