Blue Bottle Vine

jlily(Z6)March 10, 2012

Look what sprouted by my Walnut tree. It 's a blue bottle vine. It has been in progress for quite a while. I have learned to make wire harnesses for the bottles so they are secure. I cut the copper leaves from a copper sheet and folded the veins in. It's been a labor of love. Enjoy! Jlily

Jlily, your blue bottle vine is a work of art. The copper leaves are wonderfully detailed and realistic. I'm in awe of your talent! It's beautiful.

Thank you all for your compliments. There are also grapes made from gems and attached with wire and other beads and things for added bling. They don't all show in the picture but I think just the blue bottles and copper do make a statement by themselves. Jlily

Beautiful! Love the copper leaves in the sun & am sure even nicer if you are there looking at them. Blue with copper is a great combination! TFS Jan

WOW and WOW! What a different and creative idea you have come up with. That is absolutely beautiful. The copper and the blue, perfect combination. The leaves are works of art just by themselves. Thank you for sharing your beautiful yard art.

Thank you, all. I enjoyed making it. My doctor helped by supplying some bottles!! So it was a bit of a cooperative venture. LOL ENJOY! Jlily
