well, talking of bright ideas led to candles...
I put one on either side of my pathway - they showcase my new stone "welcome to spring" stepping stone.
It was lovely sitting out in the gazebo looking out at the lightly flickering candles. There was a light mist of rain which did not seem to bother the flame, and just enough to cool things down without making us head inside.
so they have yet another use... goodbye landfill hello garden art!
