I suspect its one of the paeony flowered hybrids from the Papaver somniferum group (the opium poppy) - don't know the variety name though.

We've got some identical ones coming up all over. It's amazing how these self seed year after year, and even with lots of single flowered ones about, the doubles come up repeatedly too.
We think they are beautiful flowers, even though they don't last very long.

dont confuse this with the peaonies FG, this poppy is called a peaony type because the flowers look similar.
look at the pictures of peaony sarh bernhart in my photos and you will see what i mean.
