This incredible piece of craftsmanship appeared next to a Willamette river pathway, close to University of Oregon. I thought it might be the work of beavers however, since I'm not a wildlife expert I'd welcome comments on your best guess.
I've never seen such a variety of gorgeous iris flowers! My favorites are often the deep purples like "Badlands" and "Before the Storm". They offer one called "Class Ring" which is a pretty combination of crimson and cream.
