Solar Nights

Solar Nights


Nancy Davies


During Lockdown we thought we’d finally get a grip on our garden as it was a bit of a mess. We decided to build a patio as we knew that we weren’t going to be going out and needed to stay at home so might as well do something constructive. After lots of graft the patio came together and looked great.

I wanted to get some lights rigged up and spent ages thinking about what to put in where. My sister bought me a solar light for my birthday, to be honest I didn’t really think it would be that good, but before we got the ‘proper lights’ wired in I got the solar light out – and really liked it!!! I decided then to not go for electric lights but instead fill my patio with solar lights – and I LOVE IT – great for enjoying a nice glass of wine at the end of the day!!!

I have definitely started to think more about the environment since Covid-19, I started to grow my own herbs and tomatoes and hopefully will get more confident to grow more. I can’t bear to think that all these masks people are discarding are adding to more environmental pollution, as a society we must stop draining all the earth’s resources.
