How to Add Outdoor Ambiance
I love solar lights. They provide just enough light for outdoor ambiance.
**Thanks to HOME & GARDEN THURSDAY for featuring this post!**
A gardening friend of mine had solar cattails in her garden, but she had gotten them from a store up north that we don’t have down south, so I was really pleased to find some on clearance last year at Walmart! I have them beside Uncle Henry’s goldfish pond.
I put a solar spotlight in a flower pot so that it is shining on my deck fountain. It’s just enough light to show off the fountain, but not enough to ruin the romance.
I put two path lights into this pot and set it by the deck stairs for safety. It not only identifies where the steps start to its right, but also where the deck drops off on its left side.
My arbor is nicely lit by these solar string lights that I bought from Target several years ago.
This accidental photo of the arbor is pretty cool I think.
I have another set of those same string lights around this window. This area is a work in progress. You will be seeing more of this area later.
See that green light to the right of the window? I can’t even remember where I got it, but it is one of my favorites.
It’s a cute painted metal flower and the light changes colors.
Here is a similar one at Target.
You might remember my Ginger Rock Garden. I have several “ball” solar lights in that garden. Most of them don’t work anymore, but I still like them, so I leave them.
I am thinking about spray painting them to update them. What do you think?
Do you love solar lights? I want more.
