DRANSFIELD 228 Doddington Road Lincoln. - Tel. 21550. A column for flower lovers by Mabs Cheetham AS autumn progresses, we come to a period when it is not casy to obtain many varieties of flowers, and therefore we must look elsewhere for help. I hope you will find the following ideas helpful. Lots of fun may be had wandering along hedgerows and through woods looking for " bits and pieces " to use during the late autumn and winter. Keep your eyes open for such things as bracken, berries, seed heads, grasses, comes of all sizes, small branches of larch with cones attached, likewise beech with bracks, fungi, lichen-covered branches, old man's beard, rose hips, and endless others ; also attractively-shaped pleces of old wood, bark, and roots. Your garden also supplies a great variety of material, such as iris, poppyheads and honesty-and don't forget to gather your hydrangeas (the darker shades) to dry. Press leaves from virginia creeper, beech, vine, ornamented oak, magnolia, or any good shaped leaf. Harvest your gourds, what a joy they can be! Crab-apples and even blackberries, both fruit and leaves, add colour. Most of these can be fixed into plasticine. For containers use coarse pottery, pewter, wooden boxes anti bowls, driftwood, dried tree fungi, etc. Try pressing your leaves between newspaper under a carpet. Tie seedheads into small bunches and hang in a warm place. It is well worth the trouble to brush over your dried leaves and berries with thin, clear varnish. All dried materials can then be used in their natural colour. For your Christmas decorations they also lend themselves to being painted white, gold, silver, scarlet and so on. Add a little glitter and it will really sparkle! For your party buffet table use a tall candlestick with large candle cup and make a really bold arrangement. I find this so good as it is well above the food. As I write the sun is shining and Christmas seems far away, but as it is my only opportunity I wish you all a very happy time along with lots of gay and glittering decorations made from the "bits and pieces" you have gathered.

The monthly Lincolnshire Life magazine was founded in April, 1961 with the intention of championing the cause of Lincolnshire by recording its history, folklore, culture, personalities, dialect, art, etc.

The magazine has 'thumbnail' sketches of the history of all the county's towns and many of its 700-plus villages, histories of its major houses and castles and profiles of many of its smaller houses, in private occupation. There are accounts of major and minor incidents in the county's history, augmented through the magazine's correspondence columns and details of the lives of many of the county's personalities both past and present.

By recording aspects of the county's life which were happening at the time but which no longer exist, the magazine now has the only written account of some of these customs or events.
