Simply Garden Accent Lighting

Mason Jar LED Light
Welcome back everyone!  Today, we are going to discuss a simple way to set up accent lighting in your garden.  Earlier this year, we set up a large butterfly garden and have been planting all summer long.  It is looking great and we hope to have a posting very soon once we complete the project.  While we were working, we decided that a little lighting would be a wonderful addition to the garden.  We were clearing out a brush line this summer and found some old iron fence posts, so we decided to use them as the base and put mason jars on top. Jason cleverly thought that we should use colored mason jars with solar lid lights like our friends in Atlanta have at their home. I like to have colors "pop" in the garden, so I found some cool blue mason jars which stand out among the green foliage. The solar LED lights have worked great and put out the perfect amount of light to accent the garden.  The solar lids are easily found on Amazon under Colonial Tin Mason Jar "2 Solar Lid Lights."  The solar panels are built into the tops and are water resistant, so you can use them anywhere outdoors.  However, I would assume that submerged in a pond or fountain would not be a good idea, but I may try and see what happens!  You never know unless you try, right?  Anyhow, I hope all of you have a great rest of the week, and we'll see you on Friday for our Recipe of the Week!  Till next time!
