Bottle Garden


    I was given a HUGE box of old bottles by a friend of my hubby's. He is a diver and has a huge collection of bottles, many covered in barnacles. He mentioned to David he was going to thin down and wondered if anyone would want them. I am sure my hubby's hand shoot his hand right up, as he knows me so well ;-)



    I picked out the gems to display in my house (I will share those soon) but there were a few extras. Since I live on the water and have a shell/sea glass walkway, I thought putting the bottles in my garden would be perfect. I just simple pushed some rebar in the ground and set the bottles on top. So simple!!

What a nifty idea and it adds a lot of character to your garden flowers.


What fun, love the bottles in the garden. Love old bottles. I have a neighbor that put cobalt blue bottles in their garden, but I like the way yours are displayed better.


So you, Clarice! Precious and creative!

Ingenious! I love this idea. Very pretty!


I totally adore barnacles. In Chile they are huge and edible, meat
better than crab. Your garden is lucky to have them
chattering away with the seashell and seaglass.

What a great idea to add whimsy to your garden.
