Mystery Solved!

First off, thank you to Lynette for asking her friend to solve my little mystery from yesterday. The answer was Witch Hazel.

Today I thought I would just post this picture of this gorgeous duck. During a walk thorough the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Gardens in Sellwood I took about a week ago, the little guy just stood out. I loved his green-ish tinted feathers!

Any ideas what this is?

I had lunch the other day at McMenamins Edgefield, a very cool resort in Troutdale, just north of Gresham. It has golf, a brewery, winery, huge hotel, movie theatre, pool hall, and features something like 10 or so bars and restaurants. It is huge tourist attraction and event location. I have photographed many weddings here.

Anyway, we were walking from the Powerstation Restaurant back towards the hotel and this funny plant caught our attention. Any ideas what this is?? I will have to go back in the summer and see if I can get a picture in another season :)
