Garden Art ~ Our Tea Pot Tree

Over the winter months, we accumulated approx. 25 misfit teapots! Many didn't have lids, some were donated, a few were sadly chipped and cracked, and a large selection were Young Phil's unfired pottery projects.
With glorious summer time weather today, we set about wiring pots and attaching them to the ever growing tea pot tree. Over the few short years that we've been placing teapots on the pussy willow tree, the collection has quietly and amazingly grown. Then...
and Now...
Post Script: Sadly, during a July 2010 storm, our tea pot tree came down in the middle of the night. Although the teapots survived the fall, alas, the tree did not. We have 100 teapots looking for a new location. And we have a gaping hole along this fence.

Awesome! My friend collected cobalt blue bottles and ended up making a blue bottle tree similar to yours.
