Solar lights provide just enough light for outdoor ambiance but no glaring in-your-eye brightness. Here are some ideas for adding a touch of mystery to your backyard.
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 at Walmart! They are strategically placed beside Uncle Henry’s goldfish pond.
A solar spotlight in a flower pot makes fun light on a deck fountain. It’s just enough light to show off the fountain, but not enough to ruin the romance.
Put path lights into flower pots and set it by the deck stairs for safety. It not only identifies where the steps start to its right, but mine also sits at the edge of the deck and makes the drops off more visible.
Light your arbor nicely with these solar string lights.
This accidental photo of the arbor is pretty cool I think.
String lights work great in many places.
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.

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.
