We enclose space

WHEN my husband and I decided to build a house with our own, then uncallused hands, people said we couldn't do it. They were wrong, because here it is, only about a year later, and we expect to get the last of the windows in any day now.

Grow roses where you want them

JUST name the spot where you want to grow it, and there's a rose for the place. Unless the spot is shaded. Roses need sun for at least four hours a day. More is better. But for lamppost, garage wall, fence, or a bank too steep to mow, and to loop over a wall that's bare and unneighborly, there's a wide choice in climbing roses.

Here are questions you'll have about dryers, and the answers to the questions.
