Piece of mine bottle trees sent in by a reader;
I was born and raised in Mississippi,,,,,,,,spirited from New Orleans,,,,,,,,,so I have the soul of believing in (different).....I live in Murray Kentucky now and I can bet you that no one here or near around has a bottle tree like mine,,,,,,,,
It is truly art,,or at least I
think so. Hear is a picture of it I hope you appreciate
Any colored (or clear) bottle will do, in any desirable shape. The branches serve as a peg, to give you something to hang them on.
Bottle Trees are becoming more and more popular in gardens everywhere. There are no (rules) to follow when making them, so you can make them as unique as you like.
The key is; It's your garden/yard, so make them to please you, and you too can have some beautiful garden art!
Do you know the legend behind these beautiful 'Trees', considered as garden ornaments? It's very interesting reading... Learn more about Bottle trees here...
Carols Comments; Thanks so much BJ for sharing your Bottle trees with us! They really are quite beautiful; I'm sure the neighbors are jealous! (probably busy constructing their own)

Wow! I never saw such a thing of beauty. At last a tree that I can't kill! How long did it take you to (grow)that?

Your Bottle Trees are very nice. I love the blue bottles. I bet those birds feel real special in that sparkling bird haven.
You have inspired me to start saving bottles. Especially the blue ones.
I just found this, I was hearing a lot about these, and hope to make my own. I have my whole family saving bottles for me. Where did you find the blue ones?Thanks for sharing yours. It is beautiful, I like the bird houses hanging in it. Did you add sticks to a tree stump?
