The teapot tree

I discovered something quirky on my travels recently. About 15 minutes out of town I spotted this tree, looks ordinary right?


Well on closer inspection as I drove past I saw that it was literally covered in different kinds of teapots.


I don't know why but I think it's a really neat idea and I think the person that owns the property is some sort of artist as they had different artwork and sculptures in their yard.

  14. That is fascinating. I found a tree full of guitars a couple of years ago but it was in front of a shop that sold them. I wonder what the story is here.
