Light And Airy
There are many days in early autumn when it is warm enough to sit outside and enjoy a meal in the garden with friends and family. An impromptu but attractive centrepiece can be made from freshly picked garden flowers and grasses. A galvanised watering can is improvised to provide a sturdy container. Golden yellow helianthus, red spikes of persicaria and frothy clouds of bronze-red Eragrostis spectabilis, or lovegrass, glow in the sun. Their differing heights means diners will be easily able to see each other across the table.
