Solar Powered Fun

Happy Summer! Today is the first day of summer and the summer solstice. I hope everyone has a chance to enjoy the outdoors tonight as the summer solstice means that today we have more daylight than any other day of the year, making it the perfect day to enjoy some solar powered products!

I have a few sets of solar lights in my patio and front yard and I love them. Neither my front yard nor my backyard were wired for landscaping lights, so I chose to add solar powered lights because they required no work to install (just pop in the ground and enjoy) plus they are energy efficient and save me money (sun = free, electricity = $). On this sunny day, check out the solar powered lights I own and my top picks for other fun solar items:

1. Crackled glass solar landscaping lights: I have these in my front yard and love them.  They can be set to either be color changing or display white light: Amazon

2. Beautiful  hand blown sea glass solar string lights: Amazon

3. Set of 2 kettle lantern solar landscape lights: Walmart

4. I have these solar coach lights in my backyard and think they add a nice landscaping touch: Home Depot

5. These solar powered peacock garden stakes were one of my top picks for June. I can't help it, I think they're adorable:  Target (Green or Purple)

6. Who knew you can have a solar powered outdoor fountain? It looks cool and you don't even have to worry about wasting electricity by running it continuously: Target

7.  Fun multi-colored solar party string lights:  Target

8. Super cute illuminated frog garden stakes. These are sure to make you smile:  Target
