Anyone put a name to these?
First is a Poppy, and unusual that it prefers a semi shaded position. save me looking through the book.
Second was growing on the foreshore at Parkgate on the Wirral.

The second one looks like some form of thrift - armeria maritima

Yellow thrift?

2nd one looks like a Helichrysum to me, presumably one that grows wild - the closest cultivated one would be H. bellidiodes, no idea what the one in the pic might be called though.
As for the poppy, not too sure - P. atlanticum?

Not atlanticum, we have that and it is much brighter orange, as is the semi double form of it too.
Would have to be a garden escape to be growing on The Wirral.

As far as I can ascertain the Poppy is P.pilosum subsp.spicatum., but not abso pos.
