Night or day solar lighting makes you smile!
Sure, I appreciate a good solar light that provides just the right amount of dappled light creating a pleasant mood as dusk approaches.
But equally important is a solar light that shines just as bright during the day! The hot pink color and shiny texture of the pink coneflower solar light adds a powerful punch of color all day long.
Walking along the garden path or sidewalk is a happier experience when you are enjoying the view of fashionable and functional decor.
And these coneflower lights are more of a white light, not a yellow light if you know what I mean.
Bright enough to illuminate a pathway but not blinding. Besides, yellow lighting reminds me of fluorescent office space lighting and we don’t want that!
We want to create a relaxing zone in our yard and garden and that’s exactly what these pink coneflower solar lights can do for you!
5 creative uses for solar lights!
1.) The perimeter of your landscape – Placing solar lights around your home is a no-brainer. Especially if safety is a concern where you live! Don’t neglect your sidewalks either if you have them.
2.) Indoor pots – Are solar lights strictly for the out-of-doors crowd? Nope. There’s no reason not to use them in your indoor pots during the “off season.” Stunningly pretty year-round!
3.) Poolside – Inground pool. Aboveground pool. Kiddie pool. Whatever you’ve got in your yard will surely be enhanced by solar lights. Besides. Do you like swimming in the dark? Me neither. Time for some solar lights to illuminate the way.
4.) Around your mailbox – Ever get the mail after dark? It can get downright scary. Sometimes, you even have to wait until the next day to retrieve that pesky mail. And maybe there’s more than just bills in that box, maybe some discount pizza coupons await you! Gotta get to that box!
5.) In your raised beds – I love solar lighting in my raised beds as I find myself working at twilight. In fact, I’ve been known to work in the pitch dark because it’s cooler in the evening. Solar lights help me pull weeds instead of plants.
Desert Steel is the best for the gift giver!
I could rave on all day about the quality you get from Desert Steel. That’s why I never hesitate recommending them to you.
Yes, you pay a bit more than you would at a big-box store for cheap solar lights. But you get a LOT more. You get quality functional art that will last a very long time.
That’s why Desert Steel makes for great gifts. Wedding and anniversary gifts, birthday gifts, Valentine’s Day or Christmas. You get the idea.
The recipient will start to glow themselves when they receive a Desert Steel Solar light! And if you get them a few of them, they will absolutely light up like the 4th of July with glee.
Think about it. Wouldn’t you love to receive such a lovely gift for your garden? Pink coneflower solar lights. Of course. Then the special people in your life will as well.
Let’s give quality gifts with Desert Steel for the long haul.
5 fun coneflower facts!
1.) All coneflowers have a daisy-like appearance with a prominent cone or center that is actually made up of tiny dark brown to brown-orange florets. The cones are surrounded by petals that tend to droop in the species forms.
2.) The name “echinacea” comes from the ancient Greek “echinos” for “hedgehog.” What??! But they are easy to grow.
3.) Coneflowers are grassland or prairie plants that have traditionally thrived best when their habitat is subject to heavy grazing by animals or periodic burning from lightening-sparked fires.
4.) There are between 60 and 100 hybrids and cultivated varieties of coneflower on the market. Colors range from greenish white, through yellows, oranges, orange-red, pink and bi-colored (green and pink).
5.) The coneflower plant part used historically and currently for remedies is the root, which is processed in various ways. The two species most used for echinacea- based herbal preparations are purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea), hardy in USDA zones 3 through 8, and narrow-leaf coneflower.

I lost my beautiful 25 year old landscaped front yard to a derecho in 2010. I had another derecho hit last year. I’ve taken to decorating with solar items while I wait for things to grow. These are beautiful.
