The Perfect Tree

Stainless Steel Tree

Stainless Steel Tree

This ageless specimen can be found on the grounds of the Nelson- Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, MO.  The majestic stainless steel tree stands proudly on top of a knoll overlooking the expansive grounds of the museum.

At first sight, I thought, “Wow, the perfect tree!”   No crunchy nut shells on the ground, no fruit to attract messy birds, no broken or fallen branches, no helicopter-like seeds to sprout in the lawn, no pruning necessary, no water required, and no leaves to rake. Perfect! … except for one thing:  No Shade.

I guess you can’t have everything.

Thought for the Day:  There is nothing more dreadful than imagination without taste.                                                                                                                                               Goethe
