I wanted something that sparkled and stood out amongst the plants
as they start to grow and bloom.
And, because you know me, and my lack of patience, it had to be easy.
I grabbed an empty jar, some flat sided marbles and some good glue and went to work.
I glued the marbles all over the jar in a random pattern.
I went with blue as blue is a hard color to find in perennial plants.
Plus, it reminds me of cool water and the summer sky.
I then took a solar light from the Dollar Tree and took the long pole off.
I dropped the light part, solar cell at the bottom, into the jar.
I spray painted a leftover wooden stake a dark blue and screwed the cap of the jar lid into the pole.
(Pretty darn close to center!!)
And then screwed the jar onto the lid.
Not only does it shimmer in the sunlight, it gives off a soft blue glistening glow at night thanks to the solar light inside.
Should the light quit working,
I can simple untwist it and replace the battery in the light.
I will be making another for the other end of the garden.

Don't forget to come by on Tuesday's
for the link party.
