This bronze sculpture within a concrete ring is located on the northeast corner of Barney Allis Plaza. This is rather a whimsical piece. The main focus is of a sapling. Upon closer inspection does one see that the sampling is growing on a turtle's back. There is a birdhouse and an owl in the branches. A small dog stands on the concrete ring and seems rather amused by the whole sight.
