Yes! Thank you so much.
It is Centaurea montana. It is a bigger plant the the other one. I do have some Centaurea cyanus as well, only I know them by 'Bachelors Buttons.' :)

Like your poppies, Centaurea montana is not a native plant. It is a European garden plant that has escaped to the wild in some areas.
