Bottle Tree


When I was driving to the Celebration for Fine Arts two weeks ago, I happened to pass a house in Scottsdale that had this bottle tree on the edge of the driveway.  It was one of those moments when I have to figure out a way to turn around so I can get the shot.  Fortunately, there was a place to pull over.  It certainly is a unique piece of yard art.  I don't think I'd want one in my yard.  It's not that I don't have enough empty wine bottles, I just don't think it's my kind of art.

This must be a neighborhood without a Home Owners' Association, as otherwise I am sure some HOA Board Member would be making demands and throwing his or her authority around.

I've seen bottle trees in central Florida, but they are real trees with bottles stuck on the outer parts of the branches. I don't get it.

Another way to use them up I guess :) I bet those colored bottles give nice light when the sun shines through.

I've seen people using bottles as a garden border. I know someone who makes these bottle trees. It would look interesting at night if each bottle had a little electric light inside.

Pat's (my husband) new Cannon has the same ability to join multiple shots together to make up the best image.. he's very excited about it :)

Oh la la, is this a wine-tree?
I cannot see the tap :-)
Really a unique piece of art.

Not my cup of tea, Sharon!

Very tempting to a kid with a catapult I would have thought.

It is rather unusual!

I am trying to think of something nice to say about the homeowner's taste . . .

What a unique find!

It's not exactly something I'd want in my yard, but, hey, to each his own!

Like you said much fun to see in another backyard.

There are a bazillion of these around here in East Texas. Some people adorn theirs with only blue bottles while others opt for brown. I frankly detest them!
