Okay...almost nothing. Peanut butter pie comes pretty dang close.
While both have the ability to lift spirits, one adds to the ambiance to the yard while the other clearly adds only to my butt.
So the choice is clear! Solar lights it is!
And there are no better solar lights on planet earth than solar lights handcrafted by the illustrious Desert Steel.
Besides, we all need blooms that never fade or die. Rust-resilient is a close third!
So it's my great pleasure to once again introduce you to Desert Steel. A wonderful company always reinventing product line with innovation to delight the eye and the heart.

What lights up your life?
Desert Steel for the ages...
This company is fabulous. Wonderful people who handcraft stupendous product. What more could you want?
Have you ever ordered something online but when it shows up....you're disappointed?
You click "buy" and patiently wait for the product to arrive on your doorstep. But when you rip open that brown box, you are vastly underwhelmed.
That has never happened with any product I've received from Desert Steel. No. Never. In fact, the product almost always exceeds my expectations for quality, color, size and materials used.
How often does that happen in life?
Their solar lights are another flaming example of why I like this company out of Kansas so much.
These coneflowers are an exact replica of a coneflower and very similar to the ones growing in my garden. But unlike the ones in my garden, will live on forever.
Flowers that can be enjoyed in January if I so desire! They can remain in my landscape or on pots on my small front porch.
These coneflower solar lights can even be used as indoor decor in some of my pots. The options are endless.
Not to mention Desert Steel's ability to fashion product in the most beautiful hues imaginable (where were they when I was picking out bridesmaid dresses....eeekk!)
This pink? It's the exact shade of pink I'd want a coneflower solar light in. Impossible to articulate over a blog post. You'll have to swing by my yard and see this trio set up in person.
Then you'll understand. And I'll whip up some of that peanut butter pie we were talking about. I'm good at that.

5 places to use your solar lights....
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 evening. Solar lights help me pull weeds instead of plants.
