Along the Garden Path

ON A WINTER evening, snug at home by the fire, I like to sit and rummage thru a drawer in which I keep little bits of treasure-- poems that exactly express my appreciation of a certain flower or things people have said about gardens that have so appealed to me that, at the time, I wrote them down on scraps of paper.

What Your Boy Needs

THE boy of 15 to 16 is fearful and wonderful. He is, on the average, 5 feet 4 inches tall, and he weighs 114 pounds. He is in high school, probably in his sophomore year. Likely he shaves, whether he needs to or not. Perhaps he drives the family car, sometimes with a demure young lady in the front seat beside him.

A MAN'S HOME

MAN'S desires have been taken to heart in designing this delightful home. His needs, not always considered, have received considerable study in laying out the compact floor plan. Just imagine what a difference it makes if there is just one room the man can call his own, a place in which he can smoke or read or work to his heart's content, with never a thought of reproof.

New Annuals for 1932

WHEN we think of zinnias, for instance, our minds automatically bring before us a mental picture of the huge flowers of the type known as Dahlia-flowered Zinnias. They are easy to raise, are fast growing, and they thrive in any climate. Among the more popular new colors in this type, Exquisite heads the list.

All Aboard for the Sylvan Year

SYLVAN year? What does that mean? Haven't you read in poetry and fairy tales about sylvan glens? They are beautiful woodland places with great trees, flowers, mushrooms, brooks, birds, and moths-- places where we like to think that the wood-land fairies, flower pixies, and tree gnomes live.

There are many reasons for Winter Pruning

THE best time to prune flowering shrubs and shade and fruit trees is during the late winter and early spring; that is, during late January, February, all of March, and early April, before growth begins. In the South pruning may be done earlier. The leaves are then off the trees and shrubs, and it is easy to see what one is doing and easier to do it at this time than later, when the press of other work is more demanding.
