lady bird poppies can start like that but others too. Maybe post what varieties you planted and it can be narrowed down?

At first, most of my poppy seedlings look kind of like tiny grass, but you can tell a little more when true leaves start growing. This may help some; most of the seedlings here are Shirley Poppies, and if you look closely you can see a few that have a blue-ish cast and those are P.somniferum.

these are now ferny looking and very blueish tint. I had markers in with the name written but apparently my choice in markers was poor. it has worn off already.

That kind of sounds like California Poppies. Do you recall sowing any of those?
