CREATIVE DECORATIONS for love to do flower arranging and am always looking for ways and means of doing something either with dried material or fresh. This week I would like to concentrate on dried etc Once you get the it doesn't take long to build up a collection of seed flowers and preserved foliage to use as the basis for arrangements either in the form of pictures to hang on the walls or in containers. Now that tthe outdoor garden- ing season is over I thought it would be a good idea to offer a few suggestions as to what to plant in your garden nejrt year in the way of flowers that can be utilized for pictures or winter bouquets There are various grasses I have grown and am especially fond of Briza maxima and Hordeum jubatum looks almost like our ordinary There are so many wild varieties one could collect when going for a drive or picnic in the country. Some easily colorful flowers s include Helichrysums or Strawflower. These are one of the most popular and attrac- tive of the everlastings. The seed may be sown indoors sometime around the middle of March or planted right out- side the second week in May. They do best in full sun in a sandy soil I made an arrangement for the church for Thanksgiving and everyone commented on how beautiful it was. It did create a very cheery atmosphere. There is also Aerooclimum which has single and semi- double flowers or pink or white. Globe Amaranth or Gomphrena has lovely clover- like flesh and red strawy flowerheads. Another rather unusual one is Statice Pink Pokers or Suworowi. This was very eye-catching in the garden having deep pink spikes some of which are erect and others twist and curve around the achieving wonderful effects or shapes for floral art A very pretty everlasting I grew one year was Xeranthemum which have silky-like flowers resembling single or double in a mixture of colors. There is also a which has paper-like flattened partitions of round seed pods. It is Herald- At Home Novel outdoor Yule greeting By DONALD R. BRANN This novel outdoor Christ- mas decoration extends a colorful greeting to all who pass by day or night. Christmas or- outdoor lights and perforated nardboard letters combine to nuke this a cay unite to a festive season. The Full-size pattern offered below limplifies cutting the big letters from hardboard. It ilso positions lights and or- laments to insure Mufessioftal Measuring approximately high by 2r the etters are traced from full- lite then cut out with i coping or jig saw and fasten- id to a frame exactly as step- iy-itep directions luggest. Anyone who follows simple directions can build this decoration in little time. The hardboard and other materials can usually be retrieved from last year's decorations. Since or- naments and evergreens are fastened to tetters with soft copper the most impor- tant tool you'll outside of a coping is a good pair of pliers.

Star sometimes referred to as Lunaria or There are others and you may have your own but they are all easy to grow and retain their beauty and color quite well. Cut the flowers on a dry day when just fully open and hang to dry in a cool airy place. Tie in small bundles held with an elastic band or twine. Do not dry in bright sunshine as this will fade the colors. One of the nicest foliage I like to use in arrangements is either fresh or preserved. To preserve use a solution of 2 parts of water to 1 part of standing them in this solution until the desired color is obtained. You just require enough so the cut portion of the stem is sub- merged an inch or two. You can experiment with different foliage and some take longer than others to obtain the desired effect you like. You can use discarded pic- ture frames if you are lucky to have some lying around an at- tic or basement OF they can be bought quite cheaply in a second-hand shop or similar place. The frames are usually used without glass and are given a suitable background such as etc. Use various colors to contrast or comple- ment your materials. When assembling the materials in the frame you should have a mental picture in mind as to design and before gluing etc place in position first and rearrange until satisfied. Start with flat material at the such as gradually coming to a raised effect in the centre with heavier material and darker thinning off again towards the bottom. Besides flowers and you can also incorporate into your picture some various cones and seed heads. Some types of grasses and foliage press beautifully in the green stage between blotting well weighted down. If you cannot obtain the proper shape of a use a and glue the leaves on separately. Always use as little glue as possible. Mr. W. What is the name of the lettuce that grows sort of not round as most let- tuce I saw some in a gar- den in late summer.

Flower garden medicine As you begin to plant spring- flowering Dutch bulbs this you might give some thought to the fact that tulips and among were once considered good medicine. Centuries a King's Her- balist in England actually prescribed tulips for cricke in the if drunke in harsh In the ancient Minoan crocus bulbs were esteemed as a remedy for assosrted not the least of which were i splitting headaches and sagg- ing skin. This should come as no sur- prise in the light of widespread medical folklore. Early settlers relied on dandelion field and countless herbal concoc- tions to bad and treat whatever else ailed them. of no one seriously values the tulip or crocus for their alleged medicinal virtues. Except for the fact that many of the bulb- flowers we grow have happy or Golden Springtime and Blushing Bride among the Unsurpassable and Honeybird and hyacinths L'Innocence and Pink Pearl.
