HOME OF THE WEEK KITCHEN U3UNGE AB.EA 33-0x9.6 DESIGN R2-127 A vacation home for a sun loving family is illustrated J above. This plan is a good ex- ample of contemporary design in the low or moderately priced field. Low flowing rooflines, a glass-walled lounge area, 33 by 10 feet and clerestory windows add distinction to this holiday I home. Floor plan shows an attached garage, but if this is not need- j ed an oudoor barbecue can be located in the storage area, us- ing the same chimney. Interior layout is efficient and the nat- ural fireplace adds a relaxed vacation atmosphere to this cozy cottage. (Copyright 1973.

SHRUB ROSES The article this week is in connection with a letter I re- ceived from a reader, which states, in part "We read your column in the Lethbridge Herald every week and usu- ally find something of interest for our particular use. Our ex- perience with the Persian Yel- low shrub rose is it 'literally takes over and makes such strong growth. It is very thorny too. If it wasn't for the quality of the bloom and the long last- ing blooming season we would be tempted to dig it out." I say "don't" to the last sen- tence. Here are a few sugges- tions for you: Some roses do sucker quite badly and are noted for thorns, but there are tilings 'for' and 'against' them. Hardy shrub roses are quite beautiful, most of them having a lovely scent, some stronger than others. They come in varying heights from around 4 to 6 feet, and some will bush out quite fast Also, some have more thorns than others such as Rosa rugo- sa. This is one of the oldest of cultivated roses, to which our hardiest shrub rosej or its hy- brids belong. Sometimes the shrub roses are known as "Pil- lar Roses." Actually, this type of rose shows off to best advantage in an informal set- ting, not planted in rows like the hybrid teas or floribundas and others of that type, which Young, F.R.H.S. are more versatile, and may be used in formal or informal beds. The shrub roses belong to a very large group, embracing many species and varieties. handsome flowers, some being single like the wild rose of Alberta, others are semi- double or double and the colors may be white and shades of pink, yellow and red. They are different in form from the hy- brid teas or other popular gar- den roses. The leaves are also quite different in color and texture some are shiny on top and somewhat downy be- neath and some are wrinkled and rough to the touch. The orange-red rose hips are most attractive in the fall. These roses grow best in full sun, in a well-drained, rich, loamy soil. They are quite suscepti- ble to chlorosis (a yellowing of the leaves) so should not be planted up against a basement wall where they will receive too much lime. When setting out in the garden, incorpor- ate plenty of acid peat moss and a little powdered sulphur. Those with thorny canes should not be planted close to walks where they could scratch a person passing by. Space most varieties 5 to 6 feet apart. While this may seem far apart, in a few years, spaces will be filled in. In the meantime, annuals may be used between the roses. With regard to shrub roses "taking in time they do get quite large and shoots do come up from the bottom However, unwanted growth can be cut back. This type o rose does not require too muc! pruning, except to occasionally thin out the canes to kee] the plant in shape. A few o the older canes are cut out in the spring and any extra long shoots or branches are trim med off. If you find that the foilage is getting sparse at the bottom, which it sometime does, cut off the top of young shoots when they are about 1 inches high, which will then help to force them to branch out. Unwanted shoots can be cut out below ground level Some of the tops may also be cut back. If all these tasks an carried out, a shrub rose shouli be kept within bounds and stil look attractive. For th amount of olvely bloom most of them give, I think all tin trouble is worth it. Mrs. T. What trees can plant that are fairly fast grow ers and are also nice looking Ans. The Green Ash arv Amur Cherry are two sue trees, with the Green As! growing a little faster than the cherry. These are both very lovely. I like the Amur Cherrj especially, because of its gold en, peeling bark, and the love ly white flowers in the spring It's not too late to plant! All our trees and shrubs are in containers You plant in container.

First thing to greet him, at the sou- venir stana, is an array of pre- shot color slides for sale. Ev- erything worth shooting seems ;o be there. Done to perfec- tion. Discouraging. With these professional pho- tos sneering at him. no wonder the just-average photographer bitterly wonders why he has in- vested all that money. This is to cheer him up and urge him not to quit. Take on the professionals. Here are some tips to help. Buy a collec- tion of the standard shots or just duplicate them. Then go on and improvise your own per- sonal record of having visited the spot. 1. Be it convention or true artistry, nothing impresses as much as framing the edges of the picture with tree branches or other objects in the fore- ground. I I 2. Keep backgrounds simple. 'I Experimenting with angles of view can help. A vantage point I near the ground can eliminate distracting clutter from a close- up. 3. Beat the professionals by cribbing their shots with tra- vel companions you know in the foreground. Don't pose models artificially. They should be doing something (at least I strolling) and always looking away from the camera. 4. Sometimes a flashbulb in idaylight is like a match on the Jsun. But it will light up the foreground figures so the em- Jphasis won't be taken away Ifrom them. 5. Before 10 a.m. and after 3 Jp.m. is the best time for colors. The shadows add character, as iwell. Beware the shadow that jis the trademark of the novice own. j 6. Travel light. But some- 'times it is worth lugging a tri- ipod. Night pictures with long (exposures require one. 7. Get in close. Try this: Af- jter your position is picked for a shot, take two steps forward and look through the viewfind- er again. That is probably where you should have sta- tioned yourself in the first place. 8. If there's water, remem- ber the galraor created by re- flections. 9. To keep mountains im- pressive, don't shoot uphill. Skip the picture unless you can make use of another high vantage point across an open expanse. 10. Use the human angle to score on the professionals. Their productions must be de- void of personality. Watch for revealing human gestures or actions. Many are very humor- ous and are stories without words. Pressing a button to take a picture, as strange as it sounds, is still a form of self- expression.
