    1. Thank you! That one is the Mystery Tree! It often has many things on it besides bottles. I have featured it before and always have my eye out for it if I am in that area.

  4. These look so cool - we have at least one here in Lakeland. I wonder if you'd have to take all the bottles off before a hurricane or a bad windstorm.

    1. That is one reason that I have not have one. I'd hate to have to take them all down for a storm.
