"She knew that there could be a spell put in trees, and she was familiar from the time she was born with the way bottle trees kept evil spirits from coming into the house -- by luring them inside the colored bottles, where they cannot get out again."---Livvie by Eudora Welty
When I grow up and settle down, I'm going to have a bottle tree.
Just wait.
Every time I look at it, I will think of my dear Mississippi.
