Evergreen plants makes the garden almost carefree,
besides it´s so small you almost can´t call it a garden!
The furniture was very often made of pinetree covered with
checked horsecloth, that was rather hot at the time. Being a kid I just thought
it was scratchy.
Everybody had new kitchens. Oak veneer and white goods were everything but white:
Oxblood, olive, ochre,.... a lot more strange than actually pretty.
