Text Appearing Before Image:
ime topaint the remodeled build-ing, ivory-white was decidedon for the outside. Justenough yellow was mixedwith the white to give it anivory tone. With a housepainted white, green blindsThe fresh patches of shingleswere stained to match the old weather-beaten in the roof shingles, by the use of bleaching oil. The cornices were ivory-white. A small storehouse was built at the rear of the gardenfor the accommodation of tools and other accessories. As the soil was practically virgin, little difficulty wasexperienced in soon producing a luxuriant growth of vinesand blossoms. The former were trained up the sides ofthe house, over the door posts and by the windows. A fewvines set out in the window-boxes outside the dormer win-dows vied with Petunias, Nasturtiums and Hydrangeas, thelast with their showy blossoms and the brilliant coloredAsters giving a transforming touch to the lawn. This cost in money was twelve hundred dollars, but inhealth and happiness has made returns many fold greater.
