Dainty posy in the fo­liage

Landscape (UK) - - Our Landscape -

Now is the per­fect time to make the most of the lighter, warmer nights by ei­ther din­ing, or sim­ply sit­ting, out­side in the gar­den in the evening. Hang­ing jars con­tain­ing sim­ple posies of roses and sweet peas from branches cre­ates a burst of gen­tle colour among the fo­liage. At the same time, their sweet scent fills the air with beau­ti­ful fra­grance. The hang­ers are made from wire, wound round the neck of the jar. Ide­ally, screw­top jars with threads or those with pro­nounced lips are used, to help an­chor the wire in place and avoid it slip­ping off. Gar­den twine knot­ted in place round the jar neck com­pletes the dec­o­ra­tion.
