I’ve got a little Minneapolis summer bucket list that I have yet to share with you, but it’s coming. I’m still compiling and researching but the Walker Sculpture Garden where the famous spoonbridge cherry sits is definitely on that list. I was happy to cross it off and experience it for the first time with my good friend Jamie and it couldn’t have been a better day. A picnic lunch on a beautiful day amongst a little culture is up there on my list of a perfect Saturday. The complex fabrication of the 5,800 pound spoon and 1,200 pound cherry was carried out at two shipbuilding yards in New England. The sculpture has become a beloved icon in the Garden, whether glaceed with snow in the Minnesota winters or gleaming in the warmer months, with water flowing over the surface of the cherry and a fine mist rising from its stem. Oliver joined us girls but slept the entire time. I’m just going to have to do everything twice with that kid.
