This may be a little odd, but I saw some pictures of ponds with fairy lights around the rock work and pond and I'm convinced that I just may need these little twinklers in my life.
Does anyone have them, do they last awhile, and do you love them?

I think you do what makes your heart happy. I've seen pictures of people who have their entire pond done with disco colored lights, all reds and greens and blues. It's not my cup of tea but then again I'm sure that person doesn't like my minimal solar lights. Ha
I love twinkly lights that showcase a pond so run with it!!

I've seen the disco colored lights too, but these will just be the teeny warm white ones. My fiance wants to get the whimsical solar lights for around the rock garden bed too.

Yeah, we're a little interesting!:LOL:

The old bubble Christmas lights would be cool. Bubbles and water are like peanut butter and jelly . Been a long day

On second thought, I went ahead and ordered a set from Amazon just now. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0722QGWTT/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I'm going to put them on the arbor we have leading into our garden room.

I think they'd be cute! Take pictures for us!

So, I ordered a st of solar fairy lights from amazon and they came today! (Sunday? They deliver on SUNDAY!!) I'll put them out when we get the rocks arranged right. I also bought some glow in the dark rocks to mess with my kids minds. "What glowing rocks? You guys need to stop. You must be tired, go to bed"
Heh heh. Why have kids if ya can't torture them a bit?

Those are exactly the ones I got!! Solar will be a challenge, we're very shaded, but the cord seems pretty long, so I may be able to pull this off pretty well!
I'll definitely need to see pictures of yours when you hang them! What a gorgeous area!

My old set has a tiny collector, the newer set is twice the size. You probably need 4hrs of sun to run them.

Solar pond light, this one is hi watt and doesn't burn very long, usually after midnight it's off.

So I haven't really had the time to finish the pond rock work, so the fairy lights haven't gotten out yet. Of course now I need several more sets, since we decided to bring the string we have, camping with us in a week. I love decorating the campsite, and lights are always helpful...

I'm considering something like this, but buying a large solar panel for the lights, so I don't have the little panels all over the place. My yard isn't a "neat" yard because of all the trees and kids :ROFLMAO: But I don't want to add to the chaos!

I put the fairy lights on the arbor yesterday. They came on at dusk and this picture was taken early this morning just as the first light appeared. They have been lit for 9 hours!

I will probably order another set to hang from the sun canopy I built for our pond.
