    Because of Winn-Dixie," the one the Cicely Tyson character called her "mistake tree." Why? Because, she said, she drank what came in every one of those bottles, and each one was a mistake. The small, A-frame cottage I bought here on the coast has a nice, wooded front yard, but the cruel winter has painted it drab and sad. It needed something, and quickly. So I backed off my pledge not to have another bottle tree and started trying to think outside the bottle tree box. I settled on "slumped" bottles, those being wine bottles melted to a flat distorted shape in a kiln and often used as cheese trays. I also like the name. Slumped. They look the way that sounds: tired and defeated. You can make them yourself, if you have a kiln, or buy them on eBay. I searched online for bottles I could afford. You'd be surprised how much a defeated blue bottle can cost. When the bottles arrived, I dangled them with art wire from a double-trunked tree in the yard. The effect was nice, and I congratulated myself on creating something a little different in an ultra-competitive field. Then one night we had a wind storm, and I awoke to find all my slumped bottles dead on the ground. I almost gave up on the idea -- too popular, anyhow, I reminded myself -- but the brown yard and bleak landscape gave me a second wind. I rehung them, this time on fishing line, and now they swirl in the wind as if motorized. I'm not sure if evil spirits can be captured in slumped bottles the way the legend goes, but blue bottles twirling in the wind can sure lift your spirits. I spend hours each day admiring my novel tree. And I congratulate myself on using recycled bottles where somebody else made the mistakes.
