BOTTLE TREE IN THE WORKS ~ THIS TIME I FEEL CONFIDENT!

(image from: r3tta's free use photos. Thanks ;-)

We had a beautiful day here in Houston, so I was outdoors working on chores.  Our large waxleaf ligustrum died this past summer so I cut it down today. As I was snipping off the array of twigs and leaving just the secondary stubs I thought"'What a beautiful twisted form this old shrub has. It's such a shame to throw it on the compost heap."  Then it dawned on me...could this be the bottle tree I had tried so hard this past summer to create?
I found a few left over bottles from the former disaster and put them on. Wow! This is going to be good. So...maybe by tomorrow I'll have found enough old bottles to take a photo. 
I have no idea why I want a bottle tree so badly.  It just seems like the thing to do.  Plus, they don't need watering....and they can take a hard freeze. Maybe I should JUST have bottle trees. Maybe not. :-0
