“I think that I shall never see
A poem as lovely as a tree.”
__ Joyce Kilmer
Plant a Tree
Beauty to delight,
oxygen to sustain life.
Watching trees growing.
Plant a young tree for Earth Day…
Receive nature’s gifts for life!

With our allergies and our declining energy levels in mind, we re-landscaped our front entrance, hiring landscapers to do the heavy work. The palm tree’s expected ultimate height is 10-12 feet. The plants are low maintenance, drought-resistant perennials, and the river rock is an inert permanent mulch. The one high maintenance exception is the red-flowering Dipladenia vine, which likes frequent watering.
