Sculpture honors Margot Rochester

Riverbanks Botanical Garden has a new piece of sculpture - dedicated to the memory of gardener Margot Rochester.

Rochester, a garden writer and speaker, died in October 2008.

The new sculpture has been added near the entrance to the garden's visitor's center. The sculpture features large cobalt blue pots with teardrop-shaped glass flowers mounted on copper tubes.

The sculpture was created by artists from One Eared Cow Glass.
