Is it me or are there no pictures?

I can see pictures, but no idea of the id.

30 Apr, 2015


I can see them now but again I don't know the flower.

A saxifrage? Don't know it, though.

30 Apr, 2015


Not a saxifrage, they have five petals!

I would guess with six petals that it is a member of the Iridaceae, which narrows it down to a few thousand possibles. A species Sparaxis maybe? Ixia?

Many thanks everyone . . . Googled Sparaxis and Ixia and it looks like both of them.
