These stunning pink flowers which came up in our garden every spring for three years could well be described as “Poetry in Motion”! We had no idea of their name as we did not plant them! We eventually found out that they are called “Ixia” and are members of the iris family and natives of Southern Africa. During the time that they flourish strong winds blow in from the North Sea, so that the flowers are continually swaying on their slender stems, making them difficult to capture. Sadly the brutal winter we had last year was too much for their tiny bulbs.Location: South Shields, a coastal town in Tyne and Wear, England, UK. Camera details:- Canon PowerShot S3 IS, Macro mode.

My life is divided between teaching Music and Photography. The instruments I play are organ, piano, clarinet and saxophone. I taught German and Spanish before my retirement, but since I got my digital camera no longer have time for them!

    A beautiful image Kathryn ! The ID Me group may be able to help, but actual measurements of the blooms and flowering season would be helpful for i.d.

  • Thank you, Trish. I put a different picture of them in the ID Me group with some details of the flowering season. There were hydrangea leaves behind them, which would, I hope, have given them some idea of the relative size. Unfortunately they did not come up this year. Last winter was particularly brutal and may have killed off the bulbs.
