Nothing about this garden is predictable, and that includes the tequila bottle tree. Every year, Jill and her family take a long road trip through Mexico, and they always bring tequila back with them. Many of the bottles are handblown. Over the years, she has filled a classic cedar bottle tree behind her garage with tequila bottles from those Mexican vacations. With its combination of shapes and colors, the bottle tree is the perfect way to toast the many friends, old and new, who come to the Trinket Garden looking for treasure—and friendship.
