April 2, 2012. Having the day off of work, I got my bike fixed and rode it for several miles. At one point I was on Northerly Island, below 12th Street Beach. Daphne Garden is a sculpture there, by Dessa Kirk, of three figures of Daphne, of Greek mythology, being transformed into a tree. The framework from the lower portion of each sculpture down to the ground allows for climbing plants to grow up each figure, alluding to the transformation.
