A Garden Addition?

The photo on the left is my herb garden where I hope to do the wine bottle project.  Details below.                                                                                                                                                           

This is a garden at the manor house where we stayed in Williamsburg; Powhatan Plantation.  The gardener had outlined this herb garden in upside-down wine bottles.  

I thought that was such a clever idea, and one I could do in my herb garden.  So I'll start saving my bottles and should have enough by Christmas.  Kidding!  I'll put the word out and have all my kith and kin collecting too.  Except that most of my family are teetotalers, so I'll have to ask my kith!

You are such a nerd. I got a good chuckle out of this. :)

It should look good when finished. I have seen this done before and also a wall built up out of bottle bottoms.

Belated birthday wishes to you and I am glad you like the English countryside.

That is a clever idea, it has got me so excited- Why not post a request on your local free-cycle? I am dure there are a lot of folks who wouldn't mind giving up their hooch bottles for an artsy project!
