I have been waiting for my first Meconopsis punicea to flower - buds just opening -  when my eldest daughter in  Wick, Caithness sent me this image of Lingholm already in flower!  Caithness in the very far north of Scotland can have warmer weather than one might imagine  due to the proximity of the  North Atlantic drift passing across the top of the mainland and then coming north - south down the North Sea.
