Like many things I find on the web I just blundered onto your site, don't even remember what I was looking for at the time. But I was captivated with your bottle trees. When I was a kid my dad & I went on lots of scavanger hunts on the mesas fringing Albuquerque in old abandoned houses, dump sites, camp sites, you name it; those were the best childhood times. Those places are all gone now & covered with urban sprawl. But I always liked finding old pop bottles. At one time while by father was working on a construction site to expand Presbyterian Hospital, the crew uncovered an old dump site full of medicine bottles & the like. At the time there were no bright orange biohazardous waste disposal bins in every hospital room! So he brought me some of the bottles to add to our collection. My bottles are now displayed on an old petrified tree & looking at it when the sun's shining through it never fails to bring back sweet memories.
