Wine Bottle Trees

I thought this might be a good post to show off my wine bottle trees and the garden that surrounds one of them. I am quite a fan of wine , maybe I mentioned that before , anyway ... I once saw a picture in a garden catalog of a wine bottle tree, it was kind of like a Shepard's hook with posts to place empty wine bottles on . I really wanted one , but being the cheapo I am , I couldn't see paying $40 plus shipping and handling . I drew a picture for a friend of ours. He  is a very good and creative welder  ( I am very lucky to have talented friends) , now would be the time to mention , he is also a bit over the top. He takes any idea and 100 times it ! In this case , lucky for me .
Mine turned out to look more like a weeping willow than a Shepard's hook and holds about  50 wine bottles ! It's about 7 feet tall and I'm 5 foot , so assistance was needed to place the top bottles.  I know you are wondering , is it full ?... The answer is yes . Next question , did you drink all of that wine ?... Answer again , yes.... but I did have help ! Cause really ... what's a bottle of wine without someone to share it with ? Well... it's still good of course, just not as fun ..... oops , got a little off track there.....
This garden is prettiest right now ( like all flower gardens ) mainly because there is a beautiful Sweet Autumn Clematis growing up the wine tree and it is surrounded by purple mums . Great combo , right !?

Here's a little close up . Pretty , huh ? I love , love , love it ! I have had people actually pull in my driveway to take pictures of it. Now would probably be a good time to give credit to and thank Aaron for going EXTREME on my design !
I also have a wine bottle tree at the Summer Home ( surprised ?) This one is much smaller . We made it out of an old stump . Handy Hubby cut re bar at about 8 - 10 inches , we drilled holes into the stump ( well , he drilled , but I told him where to drill ), and pounded the re bar in . Simple design . I have seen a similar wine tree made from a porch post , pretty cool.

And yes, I did drink all that wine , but not in one summer and not by myself :)
Cheers !
