Walking Iris (Neomarica gracilis) blooming indoors.
It’s just green fronds all year and then these delicate little blooms come forth for one day, and it is pretty miraculous. 🙂

I’ve never heard of a walking iris before – I will have to research that one
This plant was a gift from a dear friend who has since passed. The original plant was given to him by a friend in Costa Rica. I’ve had it here in the house for eight years or so, and it puts off these gorgeous blooms once a year and the blooms last one day. When you are surrounded by feet of the white stuff everywhere you look, the blooms from this plant are heaven sent. 🙂

Gorgeous ! Now off to read about the sugaring this year 🙂
Pretty neat plant! Very unique bloom.
I love it. It looks so delicate. At first glance I thought it was an orchid. Enjoy it today!! Thank you for sharing the beauty of this bloom.
Oh my goodness. This is beautiful, so unusual.
I LOVE it!!
There is something so “Easter-y” about this blossom! And you have the skill to nurture anything into a burst of springtime! Wow – only one day?! Fascinating!
That is just breathtaking and I am so hoping it brightens your days. A much needed change from all of that white stuff! It is amazing how many different types of iris there are and all of them beautiful.
It is beautiful
What an exotic looking iris!
Oh I love these iris – their perfume is divine and the petals are the purest white. Beautiful photo!
Thank you. They are food for the soul this time of year. 🙂
I know what you mean! 🙂
Just gorgeous! Now, when is spring arriving here?
I went out and shoveled some snow off my raised beds this morning. 🙂 We’ve got a ways to go until spring. Hope you’re doing better with spring’s arrival.
Our snow is (mostly) gone – I am hoping to see some flowers when we head south this weekend. But I think we’re a long way off here in Wisconsin!
