Impulse purchase !!

Bottle TreeAbout ten days ago, I spent time on the Internet ordering things I needed (de-flappers, sensor, heavy-duty planter caster-dollies, etc.). I made the “impulse purchase” of a bottle tree.” (Check this website for background information.) I’ve lost count of the number of times visitors say “Where’s your bottle tree?” Frankly, I believed my yard had enough “character” without a man-made object!! ~~ My purchase arrived in the mail today but I don’t plan to unwrap it and set up. I’ll save it for Fall and Winter. I have four or five months to accumulate sixteen pretty bottles. (No, I’m not going to spend money to buy bottles!!)


Perfume bottlePostscript, Monday, June 13, 2016, 12 noon: The first bottle for my tree!! I advertised on our Park Email requesting colorful empty wine bottles. A lady-friend brought me this beautiful crystal glass perfume bottle and hopes it will find a home on one of the branches. (Yes, indeed…!)

    Ask around the park for wine drinkers; I bet they’d have fun finding wine in pretty bottles and then seeing them in your garden after they’ve consumed the wine.
