funny how adding a little illumination to an area or swapping out
the lighting will completely change a space. I have been on a bit
of a kick of late, as I am sure will gather in upcoming posts, with
lights. My latest victim is my back deck. I really enjoy my back
deck in the summer time. It is one of the few places in my whole
yard that gets full sun and, for that reason, the place where I
plant my container garden. I've added a yellow Adirondack chair for
sunning and reading, which I have thoroughly enjoyed. But, just the
other day, I added another element that has made me so happy and
created a whole new way to enjoy the space. Enter the
mini-globe string lights.
Christmas decoration, these wee globe lights looked to me like
the tiniest garden string lights in America. And since my back deck
is not as sweeping as and grand as some of those seen in say the
Restoration Hardware catalog, I found their scale to be
strung them in a zigzag pattern from house to redbud tree and back.
The result is a delightful canopy that makes just enough of a glow
to enjoy my deck after dark as well. Perfect for sipping a glass of
wine, while sitting in my Adirondack chair, and watching fire
flies. Oh joy!
