    Having lighting in the garden really helps bring it to life after sunset. It extends amount of time we can enjoy our outdoor spaces on warm summer nights. Let’s see pictures of your lighting set ups 🙂🌮I know yours are good @Somerset_Jungle_UK and @greatnorthernexotic , let’s see some pics 😀

    Solar spotlights in the arid bed, string lights on the deck connected to the mains. I’m going big on lights over the next year or two: both so I can sit in the house and look out and enjoy the garden at night, and to spend more time out there after dark.

      I’m really in love with your garden @greatnorthernexotic , each project you do adds to it so much. I love the way the Opuntia looks lit up. Perfection!

        Really appreciate that, mate. Thank you. I remember when I first started on my garden journey back during lockdown 2020 I drew a lot of inspiration from watching your own transformation on YouTube, putting the stream in etc.

        I’m constantly looking at the garden and seeing what else needs doing – the next project – but frustrated by limits to both time and budget so having to be patient! It’s helpful to take a step back and appreciate how far the garden has come since I first broke ground in around April or May 2020.

        Here was my starting point:
