Light Up the Night
The days are getting shorter as we move into September. The sun is setting just before 8:30pm each day so we need light for evenings spent outdoors. We are featuring light this month, one of the Garden Décor Elements. Sun light is not as strong as it was earlier in the season leaving some solar lights dimmer and batteries not fully charging. Using indoor/outdoor battery powered lights will let you enjoy the outdoors long into the fall. Most use simple AA or AAA batteries that are easy to access and change when needed.
These battery powered lights also include timers in the lanterns and the string lights. When turned on the light will stay on for 5-6 hours, depending on the timer, go off and the come back on at the same time the next day. For example, turn the light on at 8:00pm, it will stay on until 1:00am, go off and then come back on at 8:00pm the following night. Batteries will last a few months with this process. The lanterns are indoor/outdoor and some of the styles can be set on a table or hung up. Many have a ‘candle’ inside to provide the light and others have an interior bulb. The string lights can be hung or woven around a bannister.
Don’t let fall chase you indoors. Let’s Light Up The Night!
