"Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness." -Chinese Proverb

As we look at image after image of beautiful outdoor sanctuaries, we've taken note of one detail that adds to any garden, patio, or yard. Light. In the evening hours, the glow of simple candlelight makes any space more romantic and welcoming.

"Firelight will not let you read fine stories but it's warm and you won't see the dust on the floor." -Irish Proverb

How do you light your patio, porch or yard?
