MY LITTLE BOTTLE TREESeptember 12th, 2009 in member junk
My little bottle tree has seen better days. In hopes I would get yet another year of joy from her, I staked her to a T-post this past spring. I also added, later in the summer (as she was a bit droopy), an old iron wagon wheel for support. In the beginning this tree was a lovely curly willow and when she lost her fight for life, I decided to give her a new purpose. Her multi colored coat shouts beauty when the sun glints off her glass adornments. New iron bottle trees can be found at your local nursery, but I prefer the tones of wood (dead or alive)! Some people prefer a solid color of glass bottles or a theme , such as red and green, but I like the myriad of hues dancing in the sunlight. You can use any "lost" tree or sparse shrub. I even added an old windchime to provide sweet sounds in the Texas breezes. You can add any item you like to make your tree unique and artsy.
