Shining Again

Westfield, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I had to have an electrician out for a problem that had developed in the house; while he was here I asked him to check why the little lighthouse had gone dark many months before. He was able to make it shine again; you don't know how much I have missed it!

Julia, glad you like it too. It wasn't in the original plan, but when we were building our house and I was shopping for lighting fixtures, I spotted this lighthouse and knew immediately that my life wouldn't be complete without it. I've never regretted the extra expense; it has brought me much cheer on otherwise melancholy evenings, especially in the fall when days grow short so rapidly.

"Do not go gentle into that good night; Rage, rage against the dying of the light." (Dylan Thomas)

Thank you, Delana! So am I; it lends cheer to those long, dark evenings. It comes on automatically at dusk and I have it set to shine for 4 hours before it shuts itself back off.

Thank you, gemstone! The lighthouse is nearly 3 feet tall and stands above a pond and waterfall. The pump for the waterfall is now working again as well.

Looking at the thumbnail of this..I thought it was a real full grown light house :-) I need to put my glasses on. Nice garden decor.
