Growing greenery Is always attrac tive In our homes, but It Is not al- j ways possible to havo pots of creep- i li.g plants hanging from the celling I or In the windows of tho rooms By j u single and Inexpensive arrange- ? men is, however, we can have growing foliage In any room and the elTect is ? curtainly most attractive. All we ne-d buy Is a number of car- j rots from tho grocer's ami cut off the thick ends of these anil scoop nut the . In.-ido so as to form a cup. Then 1 fasten throe wires or strings to this | nnd hang It up, (tiling the hollow, cuplike recess with water. In a short time green foliage begins to sprout from the part that Is hanging down, and as this grows and spreads out It has all the appearance of dainty fern ery. In order that th-i foliage may ! continue to nourish It Is necessary to ! till up the hollow with water overy | day as it becomes absorbed. A row of these Inverted carrot heads j In full lc:if Is a pretty sight and the : root Is practically nothing. Many peo- j pie who will admire the charming cf- j feet will not dream that the result Is achieved by such humble means aa an ordinary carrot.
