The Garden at Night.

Popped out just after 10pm last night to capture the garden lit up.
Some of the lights are solar powered and others are mains LED.
The lighting in the back garden is lovely all year round, but much nicer in the finer months.
When the buds are on the trees and shrubs, ready to open up in leaf or bloom.
Others, already in flower and leaves have opened, lit up beautifully. Very effective.

Lovely! The last pne especially. We had mains connected up lights in our first garden, but have never really gone for that since. I think because we live in the country now, I feel its not so nice. The town is well lit anyway, but here we have such deep darkness at night. I do have lots of solar fairy lights though, and love them.

Very atmospheric Katie. Your garden looks lovely at night too. Are you close to the water front and get the lights from the passing ships? I don't have any lights in ours as OH isn't keen.

Thank you Karen and Seaburngirl! Kind of you both.
I bet you see the stars clearly at night where you are Karen!
I’m right next to the river Seaburngirl, not right at the front, but pretty close. We can see the ships and yachts passing by. The only drawback is the Siemens wind turbines! I guess it provides jobs for our area.
I just pretend it’s Cape Canaveral lit up at night!

Thank you Hywel, it does seem to make it all look different at night! I’d say all the messy bits hidden and all the nice bits lit up! ;)

I love using lights in the garden, ours are solar, thinking of getting some more, they look brilliant under the tropical plants don't they......

I have to agree DD, they are pretty effective underneath the exotics!

Thank Thrup, I do love to sit by the window and look out at night, it is very calming like you say!

😊 Yes it's nice to see out into the garden from the house at night.
