It's a Poppy!

These tiny mystery seedlings back in March, became this poppy. It only made it to a pot and now lives on my potting bench outside the barn. I had collected the seeds from someone's garden years ago and wasn't sure what they would become. The tiny seedlings were abused by lack of water on several occasions. Then they went into pots and hung out in the coldframe longer than needed. Some made it to the garden to be swallowed up by a large borage volunteer. This one made it to bloom and now it has a tiny seed head for another try next year. What a trooper!
