Bottle tree and spitits

oldcrafty(8)June 27, 2011

Recently heard that bottle trees captured evil spirits and kept your garden and home safe. Found this article and thought I would share it's interesting story.

Sorry, I don't know how to post a link!(wish I did)

Interesting! I didn't realize it actually had a meaningful history. I thought it was just lovely garden junk :o)

Here is a link that might be useful: Bottle tree history
