The Bell of Peace and Harmony at Meadowlark Gardens

The Bell of Peace and Harmony is a relatively new addition to Meadowlark Gardens.  Over our last several visits we have watched it being built and here is a selection of our photos.

What a beautiful setting. So glad to see the details. My favorite was the lanterns on the backs of turtles. Wonder what the meaning is. Also don't know the meaning of the totems. Do you?

What a beautiful garden.There is a similar bell made from Japanese coins on the Iowa state capital grounds.

Well, it certainly looks like the birds know where to hang out! I love the crane etched on the bell's surface. I hope you have a happy 4th!

It is a lovely place, the bell and garden are beautiful. And I like how the birds seem to have already found a new home. I will have to look up this place on the map. Lovely photos, thanks for sharing.
