Did you know...
- For every ton of paper that is recycled, the following is saved: 7,000 gallons of water; 380 gallons of oil; and enough electricity to power an average house for six months.
- You can run a TV for six hours on the amount of electricity that is saved by recycling one aluminum can.
- By recycling just one glass bottle, you save enough electricity to power a 100-watt bulb for four hours.
However, this post is more about our own selfish ambitions to get some green in our yard for aesthetic purposes, although it does add to the friendliness of the environment! And we are pleased to present the next completed step to the backyard saga. Among the plants we've got Mexican Fan Palms, Pygmy Date Palms, Ash trees, a Sissoo tree, Mexican Lime, Tangelo, Pomegranite tree, some Oleander shrubs, Arizona Yellow Bells, Honeysuckle shrubs, Lantana ground cover and Boxwood Beauties!
The next set of pictures were taken clock-wise around the backyard
These are the Bougainvillea plants we wanted outside the windows! They have the most beautiful colors and I can't wait till they flower!
