At the old house I had a bottle tree. I had blue, purple, green and clear bottles on it. I brought the bottles with me, but left the post. It was buried in the flower bed and we were short on time and I really didn't know when or if I would get around to using my bottles again. Anywho - a while back ago I thought I would give a shot at putting them in the front flower bed. We had two pieces of rebar in the garage that we weren't using so I had hubby cut them in half and I put three bottles out in the flower bed.
They were kinda low and didn't show up much, but I left it like that for a bit to see if anything was said about my garden art.
Then we went and got another couple of pieces of rebar and I put out two more blue bottles. I like 'em! This picture was taken awhile ago and the plants in there have gone wild - I guess it was all that rain we got, but everything has grown! Including the weeds. I tried to weed some last night but the skeeters like to have carried me away so I only got about half of it done - maybe I'll get more later today. I still have more bottles - I don't know if I will add to this 'bush' or maybe start another. After the mowing and weeding is done, I'll try to get a newer pic of the flower bed.
For now, I hear doggies moving about downstairs so I better go make sure they are staying out of trouble.
