"J. D." the following list combines colors, vigor of growth, etc., that can but please almost any rose fancier: General Jacqueminot, scarlet crimson; Baron Prevost, rose; Madame Louise Carique, rosy crimson; Gloire de Dijon, orange yellow; Sir J. Paxton, cherry crimson ; Celine Forestier, yellow; Jules Margottin, bright crimson; Anna Alexeiff, rose; Due de Cazes, dark crimson; Duchesse de Medina Coeli, rich purplish crimson; William Griffith, salmon rose, and Maurice Bernardin, vermilion.
Walks and roads, in the formation of new places, should be just as few as possible, and meet the daily wants of the occupants of house and grounds. Sidewalks and roads, or bold gravel paths, without any definite objects, are objectionable, because the gravel in itself is no attraction, and is only tolerated on account of its utility. In forming a grade, or laying paths among a shrubbery, give the grade such a shape and arrange the paths so as to show as little as possible from the windows of the house.
When the sun shines out clear, very little fire heat should be kept in green-houses, and if the weather will allow, give air carefully.
