Another Wine Bottle tree .... really

You may remember from one of my many Moon Garden updates,
I was working on a wine bottle tree feature.

I had just planted the tree stump in that post.
Here is how we put it together.

First, the Man drilled holes in the stump.
Then he cut rebar to approximately 12 inches.
The rebar was then pounded in at an angle.
This continued around the stump.
We kinda just guessed where they could go.
You just want them staggered so you see all the bottles.

Tippy had to get in the way in on the project.

Since it is in the Moon Garden I only used blue and clear wine bottles.
Sounds like I have a lot of bottles huh?
Well. I kinda do.
I have NO idea where they all come from....

The only thing left to do is plant around it.
I started some Moon Flower Vine seeds in the house and had great germination!
My plan is for the vine to grow up and entwine with the bottles.
We'll see if my plan comes together .
( another 80's reference, who gets it ? )

I will probably plant white impatiens also.
They are really my favorite annual to use in the Moon Garden.
I also like white allysum .
It smells so sweet and the bees love it .

I'm thinking about wrapping lights around it too.
What do you think ?
I'll have to do it right away , before the vines get to big.

Hoping to get some planting done tomorrow.
I'll have my little helper , so we will see how that goes....

  1. I don't even know where to begin telling you how much I love this!! You've inspired me to make my deck my Moon Garden this year. I'm on the hunt for a Moonflower Vine (Did you ever read that book?), I've planted white impatiens in pots, as well as some white begonias. I never thought about a potted bottle tree! Thanks for some more inspiration! You rock!

  2. I found you at the blog hop I'm your newest follower!

    Everyone has all these wine bottles to decorate and craft with and I have none. I am suffering from wine-bottle envy.

  3. Hi,
    New follower from the blog hop please come follow me back :)

  6. Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it's challenging to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and appearance. I must say that you've done a superb job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Internet explorer.
    Superb Blog!

  7. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware
    of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries
    that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing
    without having side-effects , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

  10. I do not leave a comment, but after looking at a
    few of the remarks on "Another Wine Bottle tree .... really".
    I do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not
    to mind. Could it be simply me or do a few
    of these remarks appear like they are coming
    from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on other sites, I'd like to follow you. Would you list of the complete urls of your social sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
