Many people look upon fences as unfriendly barriers erected to pre- ' vent intrusion and to ex-hide neighbors and friends.

His "marygold" was not our marigold- it was the calendula, which is still called "pot marigold." Our marigold is native in Mexico, and was not introduced in Europe until after Shakespeare's day. But "for centuries it stood still, with small improvement, until suddenly breeders began to get "breaks" as" they term them. Why do some flower families improve so fast, and some apparently refuse to respond to plant breeders' efforts. That is a secret yet to be discovered. But, pending that discovery, gardeners may well be grateful for the breaks which have given such attractive new forms to a flower wb'ch responds so gratefully to a little garden care.
