Have you heard the Latest Garden News?

Believe it or not, the aspidistra of Gracie Fields renown is making a comeback. Time was when this "Iron plant" graced the parlor of every home with any pretense to elegance. Today, however, it has a new use. It is being planted out of doors in the Gulf States and up into Arkansas as an ornamental.

What kind of memories are yon building?

For a minute, under the Christmas lights, the traffic slowed, and there must have been many among the hurrying adults who thought as I did of another kind of Christmas long ago-- of truly silent nights when the stars stood calm and high in the planeless heavens; of Christmas Eve when you brought your own tree home from the forest; of sleigh bells ringing merrily in the frosted night.

Your house plants on parade

Mobile units are the answer if your window space is too limited for growing all the house plants you'd like. They're the solution if your sunny windows are too few.

1950 Cape Cod

No matter what the present public taste, the story-and-a-half traditional house will always be popular. And rightly so. It is more economical to build than a one-story house, you can get more floor space on a small lot, and you get the benefit of better air and more privacy in upstairs bed rooms.
