February 18, 2011MCM Home Improvement: How Does Your MCM Garden Grow?
By Sablemable aka Jan
I bought some wonderful vintage gardening magazines called The Home Garden from Ebay and I thought, since we’ve got MCM homes, shouldn’t we have MCM gardens, too? So over the next few weeks, I’ll be featuring different flowers to plant that will enhance your home.
I’ll begin with roses. At Vintage Gardens (www.vintagegardens.com) they carry a huge selection of vintage rose bushes and root roses and I chose ones that were introduced during the MCM era. Photos are courtesy of Vintage Gardens located in Sebastopol, California.
