If mother can overcome her first she'll soon find what pleasant pets mice really are. Boys particularly love to play with pet and because these rodents are so simple to look even quite a young child quickly learns how to care for them himself Mice have the added advan- tage of being very inexpen- and are readily available from most neighbourhood pet stores. Though the white laboratory mouse is by far the best there are several other types to choose from. These come in a wide variety of most of them the results of selective breeding and mutation. In some of these little dudes have such pretty they are liable to attract the most squeamish mother as pets for her son. There's chocolate coloured champagne coloured silver even No wonder the National Mouse Club of England calls the laboratory species the Fancy mouse. It's best that you provide a mousery for the new pet. This can be simply made from a Woden box about 10 by 15 inches.

A combination of field stone and rough sawn cedar produce the rustic design of the house illustrated This moderate siz- ed home can be built for year round or as a vacation cottage. In either setting it will compliment any neighbourhood. Open planning is the keynote for the daytime rooms. A knee wall separates the front entrance from the living while counters and cupboards frame the kitchen on two sides. The dining-living room area is wide open and infor- mal with an exposed beam ceiling. It is flooded by natural light from a floor to roof glass wall. Sliding glass doors give access to the spacious front deck. All three bedrooms are across the rear of the house. The master bedroom has an en suite powder room and two closets. This compact home has a full basement and a gar- age could easily be added un- der the living room or beside the master bedroom. This week and I would like to comment on Roses. Besides being the queen of all they are one of the most delightful sights we can have in our garden. The colors are out of this with some of the in par- looking like rich velvet. Not but some do have a lovely fragrance. Sweet peas and roses are a in my garden each year. By this some of your first rose blooms will be over and are getting ready for the second crop. I'm sure they have given you a great deal of pleasure and you are now looking forward to seeing some of them in bloom again. It is quite important that you give them some attention dur- ing the coming weeks. One essential task is to remove all faded or spent blooms to ensure that repeated flowering occurs in abundance. It also makes for a neater appearance of your rose bed. Occasionally suckers come up and if they originate below the graft these should be cut out as they are considered and produce no flowers. Sometimes on a hybrid a flowering stem produces three buds. The two smaller outside ones should be pinched out as soon as possible so the centre one will retain a good shape and be as large as possible. If you are entering in a this process should be done early so any scarring has time to heal up. To care for your here are a few suggestions. A regular feeding program should begin as soon as the leaf buUs start to swell. This is beneficial if carried out about every two weeks during the growing season. Special rose fertilizers may be obtained and are quite but any complete plant food will also give satisfaction. You can use a combination fertilizer and systemic insecticide. This is not for roses but may be used on ornamental shrubs and flowers against infesta- tion of spider thrips and leaf and lasts for about four weeks. This is not affected by water- ing or rain. You can use any of the water soluble or if using the dry apply at the rate of one level tbsp per working well into the soil and then watering thoroughly. Watering is most essential. Fertilizer is not too effective unless there is enough moisture in the soil to dissolve it. If you are using the liquid water before applying. Foliar feedings may also be applied with a wetting the undersides of the as it is more readily Herald At Home taken up this way. Do apply on a hot day or some burning could occur. After about the middle of it is best to discon- tinue fertilizing in order to allow sufficient time for the wood to ripen and harden off Cut roses properly Properly cut roses last longer in the vase and look better says an association known as All America Rose Selections. Cut stems on a diagonal with a sharp knife or shears about one quarter inch above a leaf. If in the take half opened in the morning take a partly open flower. Put in water preferably as warm as 100 degrees. When water keep in a cool place for several hours before a severe frost and winter sets in. Shallow cultivating throughout the growing season is also not only to keep the weeds but to improve the water retention facilities of the sou. Mulching also helps to conserve moisture. About a week I cultivated my rose bed thoroughly and then applied a layer of peat moss. If you use this keep in mind that while it does pre- vent evaporation from the it also absorbs a fair amount of rainfall or water from the hose If enough moisture is the peat moss is quite satisfactory. It also absorbs rather than reflect so the leaves and flowers are somewhat protected during hot weather. Water early enough in the day to allow the foliage to dry off before nightfall to prevent Mildew and Black Spot.
