PLANTS can help remove indoor pollutants and have other health benefits:
1- Plants can help fight colds by increasing humidity levels & decreasing dust.
2- Plants can remove airborne contaminants that cause headaches, nausea, runny noses & sneezing.
3- Plants can make you Happy :) Studies show that patients who face a garden view in their hospital rooms often recover more qucikly than those facing a wall.
4- Plants can decrease your blood pressure - people with plants in their homes have less stress.
5- Plants can reduce carbon dioxide by drawing carbon dioxide from the air thru photosynthesis; removing this substance can help prevent drowsiness and increase concentration levels.
6- Plants can remove airborne chemicals from cigarettes. PEACE LILY is a good choice.
Plants that do well in low-lighting indoor environments:
Peace Lily, Spider Plant, Rubber Plant, Dracena Janet Craig, Bamboo Palm and Corn Plant.

|securing the tree|
Working in the yard, we cut down a small tree; but then noted a bird with a worm in her mouth flying around frantically. I ran down to the road, where my son placed the tree. I found a nest with 2 baby birds. With no other trees in the front yard; we secured the tree against the garage and placed the babies back in their nest. Both mother and father mockingbird were happy and happy to dive bomb us whenever we went near the tree again. Three days later, we saw the babies perched on the branches and now they are gone.....flew the nest. Now if I can get my son to fly from the nest.
