That looks like a Eschscholzia californica or often called a Californian poppy.
Have had one of those in one of the pots in my front garden for years.
It can resow itself, but after flowering ends late September I cut it down and it just regrows and starts flowering again in May.
It can be quite vigorous and spread when flowering

Here is mine flowering lovely today.

yes, as a hardy annual they should come back again next year as long as you let some go to seed.
