part of this bough,just where it would crack if pressed, at the bend, is given aslit, quite half way through it, lengthwise. A dexterous twist or two with the fingers widens theslit; damp sand is rubbed into the aperture, and the wholeis pegged down, just at that place, into some very sandy soil.The pegs should be miniature crooks, of wood, or wire;large-sized hair-pins can be used, but wooden crooks arebetter.

Only let the pillars be of slim iron too, very tall, and thechains painted to match, then a beautiful effect is certain.The way to appreciate it best is to visit the spot at sunsettime, and stand between those swaying garlands, to see themagainst a roseate sky, all massed, as they will be, with blossomsof ever
