Yes looks like Papaver rhoeas one of the Shirley cultivars although Poppysue will be better placed to say exactly what this one is than me.

My computer struggeled with the image, did anyone else have that trouble?

Yea Baa, The image is a little large isn't it?! LOL Don't have a clue as to how to fix that part eaither Sorry!
I would fix it...but I am clueless lol Hopefully someone can still ID it without having to inlarge the image.

I just always thought that poppies had a black center, that is why I wasn't sure if this was even a poppy or not..the foilage is the same I think, but I'll still take any suggestions you all have.

The Rev. Wilks who seletively bred the Shirley Poppy noticed a poppy (p. rhoeas) without the black base makes and with a white edge. Proper Shirley Poppies do not have black marks on the petals hence my deduction.
