Puttng two together

I use a lot of blue bottles in the garden, but they were getting boring. I needed something new, so I took a few of the glass birds I had and glued them to the bottoms of the bottles. Fun!

That is cute! I actually am working on a new bird bath today and am using a bird that looks just like that and a very large wine bottle that is the same hue as yours. Very synchronistic :o)
Thanks for sharing!

I love blue. I've never found the colored glass birds. Only clear.

They are in all the flea markets here, sometimes people think they should be scarce and precious and the prices are high, but I refuse to pay more than $2 or $3 for any. I have found a lot of them. Also in green as well as the blue and clear ones, some smaller ones also at @ $1 each.

This is a little one on a beer bottle. I use these as hose guides, they are on a short length of rebar stuck in the ground.

The big blue wine bottles are in a perennial bed on tall rebar stakes, pretending to be delphiniums which I can't grow successfully here.

Sandy, I love your idea. Sometimes I just get too complicated. I have the bottles and will try this in my garden. Thank you for sharing. Marylee
