Walking Iris (Neomarica gracilis) looks like a white chocolate kiss in the early morning.

The flowers form on long stems that eventually make their way to the ground to start a new plant.

Those who are patient can watch the flowers bloom, as one petal pops open at a time.

These beautiful Irises last just one day, but the plant blooms about five times during the spring.
