Bottle Tree–Version 2

A couple of years ago I decided I wanted a bottle tree.  Bill put one together for me and you can see it here.

Since it was made of wood, it eventually fell apart and some of the bottles were broken in the process.  The rest were packed into a box and they have been sitting in the garage.  I finally decided that I wanted to purchase a bottle tree made of metal so it would last.  I ordered it on Christmas Eve and it arrived last week.  We finally got it unpacked and put in the ground.

It is the Big Daddy Bottle Tree and is from BottleTree.com.  They are located in Mississippi and ship the same day if you order in the morning. The bottles have been collected over time and several friends donated them to me.  This summer I hope to plant a climbing vine at the base and see what happens.

  2. I worked in an ornamental iron shop and designed one of these for a customer. She had all kinds of colored bottles on hers. They are pretty cool, especially when the sun hits!
