These giant leaves and benches offer shade, rest and whimsy at the bus stop in front of the Episcopal Homes at the corner of University and Fairview in St. Paul. They were created in 2002 by Marcia McEachron, an artist known for natural and whimsical sculptures.

At first glance they always make me think of palm trees, but the leaves are clearly not palm leaves (Oak leaves maybe? I never was good at identifying trees.). It’s almost like a Minnesotan version of a palm tree.
