if it's part of that large tree/bush/thing behind it, i think it's a magnolia...

it's hard to tell for sure, but the blooms in the background look like this one... it's of a magnolia in the Seattle Arboretum that i photographed a couple of weeks ago, before the blooms fully opened...

Suggest you post the photo on Garden Web's "Name That Plant!" forum. The people there are very knowledgable, and you should have your answer in minutes, if not seconds. Here's a link:

Japanese magnolia I think?

They are very slow growing, but very beautiful.

Once the blossom the petals fall straight to the ground.
