*I was visiting the Missouri Botanical Garden near St. Louis Missouri when I observed this beautiful little Goldilocks Young Lady playing with one of the bells on the bell tree. She would strike the bell with the piece hanging from the striker then giggle delightfully. I took her picture and every time I have looked at it since it has made me think, “This is proof of heaven!!”
The Bell tree is a bronze sculpture Bronze, 8 feet 8 inches x 8 feet 2 inches x 7 feet 6 1/2 inches. It was Installed at the Botanical Garden in 1986 as a gift from Mrs. E.F.Zimmerman in memory of Susannah F. Mack and Lillian C. Lowis. The Bells were designed by Paolo Soleri. William C. Severson and Vernon D. Gross designed the tree-form sculpture.
