My sister saw this idea in an edition of Southern Living magazine. They used lighting in their project, but I couldn't figure out how to do that. Use empty (some by me, but most from Sunday afternoon raids of a local restaurant's recycling bin)wine bottles, turn them neck down and plant in the ground around a garden border. I first soaked the bottles in hot water and then had to scrape the labels off which is pretty time consuming. I tried to do my "planting" after it rained so our gumbo mud would be softer.
