It adds a bit of spirituality and color to my patio garden along with the multicolored Lantana just planted for the butterflies. They have been numerous and sensational this spring."

Notice we even have a fish shaped bottle!  That bottle of wine was given to us at our wedding shower 21 years ago.  I insisted we have some of the bottles stay blue because we know their powers!  We can't wait to see the tree this winter covered in snow.  Thanks again for all your piece has added to our yard.  P.S. Our neighbors are jealous!

Thank you so much!  My Bottle tree is simply beautiful and a wonderful addition to the landscape.  I love how the dew forms on the bottles in the morning and how it changes personality throughout the day as the sunlight changes.  I need to tweek the branches a bit more but I couldn't postpone placing the bottles on it any longer.  It's truly a work of art!

"Bottle Tree Photos with Proof
of it's effectiveness!"

"My wife and I love the tree...But for now, I wanted to let you know that when it comes to performing its intended function of trapping evil spirits in the bottles, you can now "guarantee their effectiveness" to your customers, and state confidently that your trees will unquestionably perform as advertised.

In the attached, un-retouched photo (Bottle Tree A), I offer you what may be the first ever photographic evidence of how well your Bottle Trees truly perform their intended task.  This photo is straight from my Droid X phone camera and was taken with an application called High Dynamic Range Camera.  This app takes 4 separate exposures, using exposure bracketing and tone mapping, then combines them for a perfectly balanced exposure.  When I looked at this completed photo, I immediately noticed that there was what appears to be, a spirit of ill-intent caught in one of the upper bottles and actually showing itself - And this is only one day after planting!  I give you my word - this picture has not,  in any way, been altered or undergone any photo-manipulation what so ever.  What you see is what the camera actually caught."

 I have also attached a second picture, taken with the same app, and just after the first one (Bottle Tree B), but it looks like the trapped spirit shied away in this one.  This photo was  cleaned up a bit in Photo Shop, so as to minimize some distracting elements and emphasize the Bottle Tree better. "
