A little wonder in the garden is fun. Our St. Francis statute with three iron quail encircling him makes me smile. These lanterns that my spouse hung outside the sleeping porch make me smile too, because they remind me of old stories. I'm a little bit of a romantic.
Electrical lanterns would have been expensive and out of the budget, but these are from IKEA. Each lantern was eight dollars, and we hung them on four dollar rods from Home Depot.
In our warm, spring evenings these lanterns will look magical with flameless pillars.
