  • Gardening 101: How to Prune RosesGardening 101: How to Prune Roses
    Mrs. Hart was my next-door neighbor on Long Island. She was what we called “an original owner,” having moved into her brand-new house in a brand-new subdivision in the post-war exuberance of the 1940s.

  • High/Low: Wire Chair by Russell WoodardHigh/Low: Wire Chair by Russell Woodard
