Along the Garden Path

THE blue-green swells of ocean, breaking into combs and gleaming ripples; the sky-wide canvas that is painted in sunsets; the blue and white clouds; rainbows that run the gamut of colors; the falls, cascades, lakes, pools, rivers and brooks; frost etchings on windowpanes; fleecy snow-blankets-- all are water.

A Home With a Playroom

A CHILD'S home is his world, and, even to us who are grown, houses are very important places in this complex and sometimes chaotic world of ours. It is at home that we get the peace and relaxation which are vital to us in the stress of modern life. But if home is so important to those of us who are grown, think how much more vital it is to the child.

The Right Use of Color

THE surging wave of color in home decoration carries with it a need for caution. We must live with our colors, you know, and therefore we must choose wisely and well, in order that we may get along with them in peace and harmony and comfort. Color, mere color, wrongly chosen, can destroy all these pleasant attributes of home life.

From Duck Pond to Daffodils

MAKING a silk purse out of a sow's ear is really not such a hard task, after all. I know, for I once did it. The tools are a saw, a hammer, a shovel and a trowel. A carpenter's spirit level comes in handy, as also does a bucket of paint and a good brush.

A Garden Club With a Vision

A VISION, with all its power, cannot convince one's neighbor of the wealth of latent beauty that lies in his own back yard, but an organization such as the Peachtree Garden Club of Atlanta, Georgia, can and has done just this!

Bring Your Garden Indoors

GOOD gardening does not stop at the garden gate! It carries the flowers into the house and bestows them with precious care in just the places where their poise and friendliness are most needed. Woe to the unthinking person who crams and jams lovely blossoms into inappropriate containers.

Canning the Garden Surplus

NOW come the days when we really may gather the fruits of all our planting and hoeing and watering and weeding, our hopes and prayers, our backaches and lame knees, that we have hitherto invested in our vegetable gardens. Seldom do we find we have planted so that we have only enough peas or beans ready at the same time for one or two immediate meals.

We Entertain in the Garden

IT is pleasant to eat out-of-doors. The usual meal in the open, a picnic, has for a long time enjoyed a well-war-ranted popularity; but a picnic presupposes a somewhat uneasy comfort and confused mode of eating, whereas, when the table is laid in your own garden, or in a secluded corner of the yard. there may be a little elaboration.

Five Aids to Better Housekeeping

TIME was when summer was something to be endured, and not by any stretch of the imagination to be enjoyed unless one were able to move to the seaside or some convenient lake. Recently there seems to have been instituted a drive for more comfort even in hot weather, and we must thank the manufacturers of household equipment for the part they play in this campaign.

How to Use the Electric Range

THE electric range is such a convenient piece of cooking equipment that even yet it seems to me more like a magic box or Aladdin's lamp than anything strictly utilitarian. Rightly used, there is no necessity for its upkeep being unreasonably expensive.

New Uses for Jelly

JELLY and jam as a spread for buttered breads and hot biscuits win approval every place. But this is not half of the story. There are hundreds of other food combinations in which these sweets can be featured delightfully and economically. If you think back across the years to the jelly dishes mother used to make, you will want to revive them.

Toolcraft for the Unhandy Man

MY attention has been called to the fact that the majority of Better Homes and Gardens readers are not talented in the use of tools,, to the extent that they are capable of doing complircated cabinet work. So for the household engineer, or household mechanic, plans shown on this page for this month are for jobs that do not require much skill in the use of tools.

Across the Editor's Desk

EVERY parent has had experience with the child who won't eat. Of course every child will eat, if you take the sentence literally, but not every child will eat the things that are good for him, or her, as the case may be.
