    A marvelous crop! As you know, bottle trees are a traditional form of folk art in the American south.

    I found that helped to exclude a lot of actual botanical images when googling, but even then some of the best photos came up on pages 2 and 3 of my search:

    Turns out the custom originated in Africa, logically enough: http://www.dikenga.com/films/firecracker/mirror_image/index.htm

    Hmmm, beautiful image. Something from your trip up north, perhaps?

    Hi Ybs – yes, up in the Jemez. A project of Fran’s. We’ve started taking her pretty bottles. This was a very grey day, I’ll have to get another shot some time when the weather is brighter.
