Solar Garden Lights

“I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.”

— Thomas Edison (1931)

I don’t know about you, but I am so ready to sit out on my deck and enjoy some sunshine and starry nights. Last year I planted an Eco friendly bee garden. I oftentimes had guests over to share the lovely view. At night you could hear the birds chirping and critters nestling in. But I must confess, more than one guest tripped over the rocks alongside my entryway.  One person even fell flat on their face. I felt horrible. She only had a few scrapes, but still.

So this year I have decided to install Solar Garden Lights. No more guests tripping over the rocks.  I have a long pathway leading up to my door. I think the walkway would be perfect for solar path lights. It would add a lovely ambiance.
