June 6, 2011

A couple of years back, I wrote a column about bottle trees. I wanted one, but at our age Bill and I have no business tramping around in the woods looking for small dead cedar trees to make one. Well, I recently found a metal bottle tree at a reasonable price in a catalog — one of the many unsolicited ones that I get every week in my mailbox.
Because it is made of metal, you just stick it in the ground. It only holds 15 bottles, but I like it. The rains we have had recently keep the ground so soft that it leans a bit. Hopefully, that will change with the coming heat of summer.
