Millicent meets the Queen's Crown...

From The Winged Child:

      Millicent found it in a fold in the rock, obscured by vines, a cleft so narrow they had to drop their packs to squeeze through. A glimmer of light ahead and a draft of cool moist air on their faces met them halfway, and another five minutes of confined squirming brought them through to a narrow glen. Dappled sunlight filtered down through towering spruce and fir. Beyond the trees, tumbles and steeps of fractured schist and gneiss rose on all sides. Variegated mosses and lichen clung to the stones and the trunks of the trees, pendanted from their lower branches, blanketed the ground. Everywhere, from this living carpet, emerged hundreds, no, thousands of Queen’s Crown lilies arrayed in colors known and inconceivable. Hues that were seen with the eye and felt on the skin and heard in the ear, mind washing, soul cleansing color, pure and deep and intense beyond any measure and definition.
