You might think this is a piece of driftwood that Barbara Weirich dragged up from the shores of Lake Michigan into her garden in Benton Harbor, Michigan. That’s what I thought, but associate editor Danielle Sherry, who took this photo, says that it’s actually a branch from a tree that fell in Barbara’s garden. Barbara turned lemons into lemonade by pairing this sculptural limb with a garden of grasses, to great effect.
