Plant: Rain Flower

Unread post by photowiz » Sun Jun 12, 2011 4:42 pm

Hi everybody,

I recently took a photo of this flower, now that I want to give it a name I can't find it on google.
Can anyone please provide an ID?

Thanks,
Thomas

The flower is also known as the reenblommetjie...( rain flower). It seems to be the first one to bloom after the rains !!!
