On its surface hover five colorful dragonflies. The two-foot creatures with three-foot wingspans were made by Morton from powder-coated wrought iron, glass beads, crystal and semiprecious gems....Nearby, a long border contains several espaliered fruit trees fastened to custom trellises that coordinate with the dragonflies.
