Could you give us a pic?

Are the pods large (like the size of a walnut or bigger)?

I've seen both p. rhoeas and p. orientalis is orangish tones. Both are inactive.

If they are somniferum, harvest time is generally 2-3 weeks after the petals fall off - once the pod stops growing.

And...Please don't take people's pods unless you are sure they aren't planning to use them for whatever purpose.
I'm sure you wouldn't like growing poppies only to have someone steal your pods before you harvest...

You live in california? I know i do and i see pretty big patches of wild calfiornia poppies(orange) growing here and there. Ill have you know california poppies are a sedative but contain no opium and harvesting of wild ones is a bad idea since it IS our state flower and im not sure exactly the charge but im pretty sure its a bigun. so becaureful if you want california poppies and live in california i defenitely advise growing you own =)
