Feeding and other bird enticements will let you enjoy birds this summer, too, says Robert Ellarson, University of Wisconsin-Extension wildlife ecologist. Cardinals, rose breasted grosbeaks and nuthatches are among the birds that will brighten a yard if sunflower seeds are available year-round. If a home is surrounded by trees, hummingbirds can be made frequent visitors. Special feeders to attract them are available at most garden supply stores. The feeders consist of a bottle with a feeding tube filled with a sugar syrup. Some brightly colored attachment attracts the bird's attention as a nectar-filled flower would. Or hummingbirds can be attracted by planting certain flowers, Ellarson says. They feed mostly on the nectar of tubular-shaped flowers such as .petunias or flowers of the trumpet vine. Different landscape shrubs have berries that ripen at different times throughout the summer and can provide bird food. A shrub with early ripening berries is the Juneberry, also known as amelanchier, or serviceberry. This shrub's berries are especially appealing to robins and catbirds. After the Juneberry, honeysuckle berries ripen, followed by redosier dogwood and mulberry. Later in summer, the autumn olive provides large amounts of red, succulent berries which are popular with birds. Water also attacts birds. Either a conventional birdbath or shallow pan will do. An inverted garbage can cover set out on the lawn and filled with water works well. If a garden hose can be set up to provide a constant dripping on the water's surface, the birds will seek out the birdbath even more. Ellarson cautions against placing a birdbath close to shrubs or other such shelter. Place it in the open so birds can see cats and other predators coming.

Ledger attached with lag screws ties structure to house. Patios In South And West Sun Are Cooled With Trellis Cover Although a patio originally was an open inner court of a Spanish house, the term now applies generally to outdoor living areas, such as decks, terraces, garden rooms or atriums. Because many of these outdoor rooms face west or have southern exposures for warmth in spring and fall, they also need an overhead structure to limit the direct sun in summer. A patio cover of spaced western wood slats provides a shady spot for an outdoor table and chairs, and the open design keeps it from being a heat trap. One couple added a deck at a corner of their house, with access from both the living room and master bedroom, and a trellis to screen the sun. The trellis of spaced 2x2-inch west- Method Given For Controlling Picnic Beetles Picnic beetles, black insects that have four, yellow-to-orange spots on their backs, are a nuisance, particularly at picnics. They also invade gardens and attack fruit and vegetables damaged by weather or other insects. Ripe tomatoes with growth cracks are especially prone to attack, the Extension Service notes. The picnic beetles are difficult to control, the" service says. Sprays of carbaryl .(Sevin) may be helpful. Use two tablespoons per gallon of water in the garden, the service advises. Diazi- non sprays around garbage containers may also be helpful. Be sure to follow label directions for use in home gardens. Do not harvest tomatoes for at least 24 hours after application, the service warns. For All Your Electrical Needs KOYM LIGHTING CENTER KOYM ELECTRICAL SUPPLY 232-7239 ^-^/ 232-7156 1650 S.

The structure attaches to a ledger strip fastened to the wall studs with lag screws. The trellis was finished with a tinted stain to match the house paint, bu it could have been left unfinished for a natural look. The lower portions of the posts sunk in the ground were preservative treated. A point to remember when planning an outdoor room is the difference in scale from an indoor room. Fences, trees and the sky replace walls and ceiling, allowing more spacious groupings of outdoor furniture and container plants. The patio and its furnishing should be coordinated with the other rooms of the house. Closeness to the kitchen eases meal and snack service and a pass-through can be added. • When deck or patio is adjacent to the living or family room, extra tables and chairs can be moved outside quickly for entertaining. Baseboard Panels Won't Scorch Floor-Length Draperies Do you know that with hydronic (modern hot water) baseboard heating it's perfectly safe to hang floor length draperies? According to the National Better Heating-Cooling Council, hy- dronic baseboard heating panels never get too hot to the touch and won't scorch draperies.

A wall makes an ideal "canvas" for special decorating projects, the National Paint & Coatings Association says. One idea is creating giant polka dots with a one-or-two inch piece of cork. To carry out the projects, the association suggests gathering together a cork, a can of bright latex enamel, and a scrap of wood to serve as the paint "palette." Pour a little paint onto the wood, dip the cork into it, then press firmly on the wall to create a neat polka dot. Repeat the pattern. • W • • • V GUTTERS?
