In answer to my bottle garden-I started out a few years ago with just the blue-but friends and family have given me some of their very old bottles or one from a celebration or other and I have one in there of my absolute favorite color........
|When I asked my maintenance man-hubby-for something to hang my new birdhouse I made in pottery class on-he dug into his stash of never-throw-anything-away-from-work-or-anywhere pile and this is what he came up with.......|
These aren't all of my bottles-but quite a few-it is something I'm told is done quite a bit in the south! I love mine! The birdbath is very old-from my grandmothers home from when I was a child-I remember sitting at her kitchen table and watching the birds take a bath-she loved that!
A picture I took last summer in Belfast-I thought these homemade trellis would be great for morning glories or scarlet runners-my and hummingbirds favorite beans! I'm going to start making a couple early this year!
Can you see my birthday present from my maintenance man last year-I've wanted one for a long time and he has a friend up north whose town is taking them out~~~and~~~was I surprised!! I love it!!
