Bottle tree

Jimmy Dunitz stands by his juniper bottle tree near Hermosa Creek on Thursday. Popular in the South and traceable to African legend, it was believed bottles suspended in trees would attract evil spirits when the sun glimmered through them and the spirits then would be trapped inside the bottles. “But I like the whimsical touch to the garden,” Dunitz said.
