Meijer Gardens – Part 2

Continuing our tour of Meijer Gardens.  Fortunately, the web site for Meijer Gardens ( has many sculptures identified and I will be using that help to identify the photos I share below.  I recommend that you visit their site for further descriptions of these sculptures.  Unfortunately, I can not identify all the photos I’m sharing.

Neuron by Roxy Paine is made of stainless steel.  The metal used is recycled, some from pharmaceutical laboratories.  The original markings can still be seen on some of the material.

    Amazing pieces of art! Totally love the red garden trowel. I think I’d like to grow Morning Glories up those spider’s legs . . .

      The garden trowel (Plantoir) was hard to capture and still give a sense of scale. Plant your morning glories, but leave a gap in the back where you can sneak in and hide. Put a small bench in there to sit on and relax in the shade.
