Plant Obama Bowers Now

Something in Obama's tone made me believe his comment about American's energy bills needing to double.  This was during his 1st term.
Results, in my garden, below.
Crape myrtle 'Natchez', below, shades my house from sunrise to noon.
The western sun was planted in crapes years ago.

Most money saved on energy bills involves discomfort.  Who wants to be hot or cold beyond necessary?
Choose beauty for savings.  And more places for the song birds to thrive.  Butterflies & native honeybees too.

Before the crape myrtle blooms the Chinese snowball, above/below, blooms in the same garden room during March.

 Other crape myrtles in my garden save almost $40/month with electric bills for decades.
Math is in the thousands, tax free.

We have some wonderful old shade trees at my house. I've noticed it's 10 - 20 degrees cooler here than at my neighbors who don't have the shade.
Very sage advice.
