Queen Emma Lily - Crinum augustum

Queen Emma was the wife of the Hawaiian King Kamehamea IV. This plant
was one of her favourites. I photographed it on the Island of Kauai, where the
Queen established the beautiful Allerton Gardens, a bpotanical paradise.
This flower is part of the Amaryllis family, closely related to the Lily family.
A brief rainshower during the night left a few drops on the petals.
