Many pictures are duplicated here to show this “Bottle Bush“ project from start to finish. ~~ It started so innocently with an impulse purchase, followed by “peculiar person project.” I did an Internet search and learned Bottle Trees are considered the poor man’s stained glass.
Strangely, there isn’t a blog message when I originally set up the “bush” –but several pictures. The forty pound metal “base” was purchased in North Carolina, moved to Texas, but lacked a useful purpose until this project. (I’m deliberate about a sturdy base!!)
If you have followed my blog you know this original purchase turned into Bottle Mania.
I’d rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
(Below) The white plastic trash bag is in the planter for a purpose. Further down the line, see the end result.
No rhyme or reason: I like Bottle Bushes and Bottle Trees “rooted” in a planter.

Finishing this project was more important than watching the Today Show celebrate 65 years. Would my improvised forms accomplish my goal??
