Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 9, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID - Friday, February 9, 1973 HOME OF THE WEEK Extra shelf needs DESIGN R3-818 1072 Sq. Ft. DESIGN R3-818 Although the house itself is 1.072 square feet, it appears larger as the roof line has been extended to accommodate the carport and give a protected side entrance. Thoughtful planning has resulted in excellent circulation. Busy daytime rooms are on the left, while bedrooms are secluded on the right. Grading allows for a generous front window feeding natural light int6 a basement playroom. A lot with a natural slope to the left would be ideal. The laundry area is also planned for the basement, but it could be relocated at ground level by converting the nook off the kitchen into a laundry room. This would still leave ample space in the kitchen for an eating area. Exterior shown is brick veneer.

Toronto Star Syndicate) YOUR GARDEN By Isabelle R. Young, F.R.H.S. ROSES RED ARE FOR LOVE Next week, February 14, is Valentine's Day, and what better way to express one's love than by giving some red roses, be it one, two, or a dozen or so. The beautiful "Queen" of all flowers are not too long-lasting under ordinary conditions, but with a little extra care, will give you pleasure for many, many days. When you receive them, especially those out of water, recut the stems and peel or crush ends. This helps water to be absorbed quicker. Place in the. "following solution - 1 tbsp. sugar, 2 tbsp. vinegar to 1 quart water, plus Yz tsp. of liquid bleach. This prevents the growth of yeast and bacteria in the sugar solution without harming the blooms. Keep out of direct sunlight or too much heat. Cut rose?  are fairly expensive to buy so why not plant some of your own this year and enjoy them all summer, indoors and out. I would like to recommend to you some of the most beautiful of the red ones that I have grown, as well as others. In the Hybrid Tea class there is COMMAND PERFORMANCE,, a warm orange-red, fragrant, high centered blooms. The beautiful color is non-fading. An All-America Winner. PAPA MEILLAND is considered the best of the dark reds. This is also a good exhibition rose, with a lovely fragrance. NEW YORKER is not new, but I still like it because of its delightful perfume and sparkling red color. Another fine red is MR. LINCOLN. It Is fragrant and very double. An All-America winner, Ihe rich, dark, velvety petals are truly beautiful. CHRYSLER IMPERIAL is almost to the top of "favorites." It has long, tapered; deep crimson buds that unfold into 5 inch flowers, very fragrant. Also an All-America winner. LOTTE GUNT-IIART is a rather unique rose. It has huge 5 to 6 inch blooms, c o n t a i n ing 90 tightly furled, satiny-textured petals of ruby red. The flowers are long lasting, making them ideal for cutting. BIGRED, and it is "big," 6 inches in width. It is a bold red in color with a rosy-red tone on the underside of the petals. It has a rather spicy fragrance. A good exhibition specimen. As its name implies, FRAGRANT CLOUD is nicely scented. The buds are a rich dark red, opening to coral red and deepening to orange-red when fully open. It has a time rose perfume. A striking rose, with bright red on top of the petals and white on the underside is BAJAZZO. RED DEVIL, a scarlet red, is considered by many to be an excellent exhibition rose. From the Peace collection, there is RED PEACE (Karl Herbst), scarlet-red in color with lighter reverse. The blooms are large, fragrant and nicely formed. FLAMING PEACE (Kronenbourgh) has rich claret-red blooms with yellow reverse on petals. An outstanding rose with 5 inch blooms. ZULU QUEEN is one of the "blackest" of red roses, a deep maroon and something really different in roses.

Ans. - The seed should be started now as it takes around 15 days for them to germinate and even after they are up, they are slow growing. The bulbs may also be started now any time if you want flowers early in the summer. I have some sprouting on my kitchen counter, that were put in peat moss a few days ago. By MR. FIX The only house with enough shelves is a house nobody lives in. Maybe when you first move in there are enough shelves. But by now things are probably different. Do books pile up on desks and tables and then get shuffled off in cardboard boxes? Do paint cans stand on the basement or garage floor? Do the kids' toys and games, the ones not in that fancy toy box, pile up on the closet floor or in one corner of the basement? No doubt about it. You're ready to put up shelves. Most shelves are for books. An eight - inch shelf will do most of the time, but you may* want to stick in a few that are 12 inches deep for oversize volumes. If you do vary the widths, place the wider shelves at the bottom. They look better that way. Sometimes you can put your shelves on movable supports so that the distance between them can be changed. If the distance is to be fixed, allow at least 10 in. That will take care of most books. But put in some that allow for 12 inches of height. Remember tli at you must have room enough for the book plus some finger room. You can buy in department stores as well as lumber yards shelving already made up in certain widths and lengths. These are smooth, sometimes veneered, f i n ished or ready for finishing. They are thick, handsome and expensive. But while thinner shelves will need extra supports, you will save money in the long run. Pick over the lumber carefully and you can come up with some fairly good wood at reasonable prices. When you put shelves in the basement or garage, use economy grade lumber. That goes for closet shelves, too. Even out in the living room you can get away with economy grade lumber if you paint the shelves. Like the shelves, the hardware for supporting them will vary in appearance and cost. There are plain steel shelf brackets and then there are brackets made up fancy, with scroll work and done up in black or bronze. You decide. Just get them big enough to support the shelf. You can get special brackets that fit into metal mounting ships that are mounted permanently on the wall. These are expensive but allow great flexibility. Hardware nans up the cost of shelves. If the shelf runs from corner to corner you can put wood strips on side walls to support the shelf and even a strip of wood under the shelf on the back wall. Or you can mount a side support of lumber and place wood cleats on it. If you have the power tools, you can dado grooves in boards for both sides of the shelves and support them in these grooves. If shelves fill an entire wall, make a simple boxlike arrangement with no front or back. Toenail through the ton piece into the wall and through the sides into the studs. You can skip the bottom it you like, since the floor serves as a bottom. You can then use wood strips on the sides or even drill holes and support the shelves on pegs. i (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
