Hi everyone,

I'm terrible at identifying flowers. My friend took this cool photo on his vintage camera of me holding this flower and I've always wondered what it was

My other friend suggested a Dahlia but the leaves don't match.

Thank you!

The flower bud hanging down makes me think it is a poppy of some kind.

Looks like Poppy (Papaver) to me too. Check out a few database photos for comparison: https://garden.org/plants/sear...

The leaves are poppy leaves. Maybe Papaver somniferum

I agree Papaver somniferum - double form. I have them.

Definitely a poppy. The leaves and the bud are proof.
