Perhaps you need a fence of j thorns 1o stop "any" dog" a hedge along the boundary of i boy. would resent a hedge of mag- nificent flowers from spring 'til fall which will beautify his property as much as yours? At the same time your fencing needs are met, for beneath the gorgeous blooms lie enough or flowers in window boxes, pots, baskets, planters or whatever suits your fancy. Season of blcom can be early, mid-sea- son or late, depending on var- iety. For early blcom, you can start, the dwarf Marigolds in- doors towards the end of Feb- ruary and the taller ones about the middle ef March. For later bloom, start in April. They ger- minate quite readily seme in a few days. Seed may also be planted directly in the gar- den about mid-May. Marigolds do best in full sun. although they will grow in semi-shade, but flowers will be somewhat smaller. Do not plant up against a basement wall as this seems to encourage spider mite. Spray with Kelthane if this should occur. While Marigolds do well in a rich soil, do not over fertilize. When setting plants out in the garden, give an application of 10-52-17 fer- tilizer, using 2 tbsps. to 1 gal- lon cf water, giving a good cup- ful to each plant. Do not trans- plant into beds or borders, etc. until all danger of frost is over. There are so many new and improved varieties, it would be difficult to recommend any I particular one. For dwarf type, j I am partial to the Petites j a French Marigold that grows approximately 6 inches high. These have small, double flow- ers in yellow, gold.

"MY MOTHER'S GARDEN" Today, in thinking, sudden- ly I knew The secret of her garden and its ways; Why all the curly roots made haste and grew And were the first to start their blossom days. Her pinks would hurry into spicy growing While still the iris purpled lovely banners; And past the time for poppies to be going The petals quite forgot their gar- den manners. For I remem- ber how she used to talk To pansics that looked up with childlike faces; She knelt to touch them by the garden walk And all their beauty took on added graces. Now this one thing at last I surely know Flowers, like children, must have love to grow. try to soothe the nerves, buoy up the spirits, and stretch the budget. When you build some- tiling that improves your fam- ily's living pattern, while it shows you a better way to in- vest spare time, you create memorable experience, plus a carefree time zone. Learning where and how to find peace of mind in this hectic world is vitally important to each of us. Those who long for a cool, quiet place to relax during the hot summer months, a place to dine and entertain out-of-doors, this build-it-yourself patio pro- vides the perfect answer.

DESIGN R3476 Few homeowners want to spend their summers painting their houses. With that in mind, the ranch style house illustrated was designed with an almost maintenance free exterior. The stone veneer and small areas of cedar shingles will serve for many years without care. This three-bedroom house will contain square feet cf living area. There are three entrances from outside and a fourth at the rear of the garage, which is extremely useful in bad weather. Well lighted by three front windows, the living room fea- tures a corner fireplace. A sep- arate dining room, with a walk- out to the terrace, is part of the design. Handy to the convenient, U- shap-cd kitchen is the laundry. Its Iccsllon wiil save many steps. The kitchen itself is a textbook example of efficiency from its built-in oven to' built- in range and breakfast nook. Efficiency is also the hall- mark of the family bathroom. It can be entered directly from two of the bedrooms or the hallway. It contains an angled tub with shower and both double and single vanities. There is a powder room at the other side of the house.
