We are all longing for the warm summer evenings to return, when we can again sit out in the garden, enjoying the stillness and appreciating the flowers around us.
Candle light creates a special ambience too and there is an enormous range of stunning lanterns to be had from Broste Copenhagen, one of Scandinaviaâ€™s principal brands, where you are sure to find a variety to suit your taste and plans.
There are bamboo ones, glass, wood and metal ones and some connected materials. The Broste lanterns come in all shapes and sizes, big enough to look wonderful on the deck or patio and small enough for hanging on trees.
Priced from Â£13 to Â£260.
