this f n that About Town BY MARY ALICE PEARSON It's fall -- time to tidy up ths garden, put away cotton slipcovers and reward the family for summer-long gas saving efforts with a drive to the nearest hiking spot to savor the air and nature's annual color extravaganza. You can return from your outing with an armload of interesting grasses, pods and flowers whose delightful aromas, eye-catching shapes and natural colors will spruce-up any room of your home. Begin at (he front door with a wicker half-basket filled with bright, welcoming straw flowers, proceed to a foyer fragrant with eucalyptus stalks and into a living room sparked with a dramatic arrangement of tall grasses with feathery plumes. In the kitchen, a container such as an antique brass bowl or a perky rooster vase from the florist will add a piquant, country air when filled with statice, golden wheat or a mixture of dried materials in copper, burnished greens and berries. Fall is the season of bright color and form in meadow and field. So let the year's harvest of dried flowers and plants brighten your home and your world -- naturally.
