Even scaled-down, it's a nice example of how good an image the camera can produce.  The plant's a Camassia, one of a bunch of lilies with bulbs from the western US (there's one eastern species).  They'd be common garden flowers if only thery were native to Europe instead of America.

It's at the Leach Garden in Portland, a house and this "cabin" with the owners' collections of lots of native plants and some neat non-natives.  



Here's some Camassia plants with little Lewisias (named for Capt. Lewis of the Lewis & Clark expedition).

Lots more including this amazing rhododendron garden (I used to live nearby)

Crystal Springs


And the Japanese Garden has a brand-new, authentic Japanese castle wall.  


A pond with new buildings behind.  Moss on the roofs, to blend in.
