"Cobalt-blue bottles, whether they come from vodka, sparkling water or perfume, are beautiful in the sunshine. If you’ve got an old tree that doesn’t do much for its surroundings, consider adding bottles to the nooks and crannies for a beautiful cobalt collection."

I love this idea. I have a dead fruit tree that I was going to cut down but maybe I'll cut enough off the branches so I can insert bottles over them. Some appropriately colored strings of lights at Xmas will be a nice touch, too. Or maybe I'll just use white so I can illuminate it all year 'round.
