A Nice Glow.

Greetings, yes it's me, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar.  How are you?  In this photo, I'm snuggled up in a cosy chair.  The front half of the chair has a black booster seat that I sit on to help me reach the keyboard and see the computer screen.
My human, Gary, has been testing out solar lamps.  Brought a bunch of them indoors and recharged their batteries.  He really likes solar lamps.  We are both hoping that when he takes them outside into the magical garden, they will glow through the night.  Cast a warm ambience upon the enchanting garden of magical wee folks.
The ball of illumination you see is a solar lamp wind chime.  Tomorrow, the music of nature shall be playing sweet tunes to the wee folks.
Thus, my friend, soon the magical, enchanting garden shall be awash with glowing lights.  Very much like the night that Fidelina, the beautiful fairy princess and Geoffrey the garden gnome, were wed.

    1. Hi Ray,

      That solar lamp wind chime changes colours. My human's now trying to figure out whereabouts to hang it outside. A nice touch to a garden, for sure.

    2. See! I knew I shouldn't type without my glasses! I'm also having internet problems. So--maybe the cyber thief sold the E and replaced it with an A. Everybody knows there are more A's than E's. Right?

    3. Hi Joylene,

      Panny, sorry, Penny is have a pawer, sorry, power nap. Which mean, she's letting me reply. Penny would probably say something silly that typing with your glasses would be rather difficult and she would recommend you use your fingers. To type, that is. There are certainly more A's in Canada, A? E, what am I saying....

      Take care, A.

      Penny's human,

      Gary

  3. I just bought 4 solar post toppers for the porch, I can't wait to see what they look like, but first I have to paint the damn thing. I do enjoy the dark, when it's properly lit. :)

  13. Hi Penny ... you are obviously in collusion with the weather gods - and know that warm dry weather is on its way ..the thought of sitting outside under the trees, with Fidelina and Geoffrey, your other gnome friends ... your human, with his son, with you at their feet enjoying the glow of Gary's lights, the gentle zephyr breeze brushing the windchimes .. sounds quite wonderful ..

    I'm glad your human plans ahead .. that's what I like to see!! Happy days Penny .. the walks should be offering lots of lovely flowery scents now, verdant lush grass ... and generally some peace of nature .. happy times - cheers Hilary

      Let us savour this pleasant weather and hope it bodes well for a long overdue actual summer. You describe so well the serenity we all embrace in the garden of hopes and dreams. The wind chimes, the music of nature.

      He knows that the batteries can be recharged in solar lamps. Some humans think that the solar lamp is broken when all it might need is to bring the batteries indoors and use a charging machine. Happy times, we visualise for us and for you, dear human friend.

  20. Dear Penny, why do humans love lighting up the night and shutting out the sun in the mornings, and then there's really cold houses in Summer and hot houses in Winter - why Penny Why?

    1. Dear Ida,

      When it comes to street lamps and buildings with too many lights on, I do concur. And yet, my human is a man who does his best to respect the balance of nature. In the magical garden, there is a rain barrel. Bath tub water is transported to the garden and used to water the foliage.

      The gentle glow of the solar lamps have healing qualities for my human as he goes into our garden, our enchanted garden, a sanctuary for his soul.

      Fidelina, the beautiful fairy princess and Geoffrey the garden gnome are married. True testimony that the power of love has no boundaries. And they have a beautiful son named Einahalk. Thus, not a ceramic union, but an ideal. A lesson about a world where stigma is an alien concept and a rejoicing of an all different, all equal world.

    1. Hi Suzanne Furness,

      Strangely enough, my human has mostly found the cheaper ones work the best. Of course, part of the problem in Britain can be lack of sunshine. My human has recharged a bunch of solar lamps and hopes they should now last through the summer. The problem we have though is that our garden has a very large tree and causes a lot of shade. The solar lamp wind chime was purchased at B&M Stores for £4.99, regular price, £19.99.

  23. It's always wonderful to get our yards in order for the warm season...the faeries and pixies and gnomes will appreciate your efforts for sure. We have used solar lights here for quite some time Penny...they work well. We keep the nice ones in the back yard as we had some "borrowed" from our front year once.

    1. Hi Delores,

      I noticed when I went out for a play in the garden that the wee folks are looking real happy. A lot of that may have to do with my human removing the rest of the autumn leaves from them. Solar lamps work better in places that get sunshine. You get some decent sunshine where you live. My family on the west coast of Canada have problems with their solar lamps. Whoever "borrowed" your solar lamps from the front garden were not very nice.

    Replies
    1. Hi Terry,

      Thank you. Oh the reason my human recharged the batteries on a recharging machine was because the batteries didn't have any charge left in them from solar energy. Once charged up, they should hopefully last through the summer. Inside solar lamps are rechargeable batteries. If the lamps are working, flat batteries may well be the reason. So my human brought a few in to see how they looked with their batteries fully charged.

      Thank you for the pawsitive wishes to me and my human :)

      Pawsitive wishes,

    1. Hi Laura,

      For sure and of course, the idea of more solar lamps to enchant the wee folks, was my idea. Thank you, my human friend.

  47. How special! Romantic mood lighting and a wedding for a match made in the garden. Penny, you amaze me all the time. I'm thinking a booster seat might be something I could use. I'll have to look into that. Great idea.

  48. Hi Lee,

    Special and the romantic mood lighting at the wee folks wedding induced much mayhem and merriment. However, thought best not to include those photos. Lee, my human friend, I amaze myself! :) Happy booster seating!

    1. Hi Petronela,

      Ah yes, solar bliss in my lovely garden. My human has created some really neat visual areas in the garden. You are most welcome to visit and Fidelina is enchanted by your world, as much as my human and I :)

    1. Hi Elizabeth,

      My human tells me he is thoughtful, amazing, incredibly good looking and charming. I humour him. Still, glowing lamps for the wee folks as they dance the night away. And yep, a booster seat for me so I can see what I'm typing to you, yes you, my bestest type human friend.

  52. Good grief. This is uncanny. I LOVE solar lights, but not the typical ones. I have bought "FAIRY LIGHTS". They are like christmas lights, but extremely miniature and work off solar.

    I spread mine through the fronds of two miniature (think 8 inches tall) palms, then laid the rest on the ground. On top of the lights, I sat my favorite 'wee folks', only my wee folks are frogs. Gotta love them thar froggies.

    Joe and I stare at them at night. I have them in three areas. Back porch. Front garden. Side patch of dirt. So no matter where we go, we see fairy lights.

    I had a photo of them on my blog a while back. Penny must have missed it.

    I'm exhausted now. *poof* and I'm outta here.

    1. Hi lotta joy,

      Ah yes, my human was in a store the other day that sells the type of solar lights you are talking about. He's thinking about getting some to drape over some bushes. Did you know that they call "Christmas lights", "fairy lights", in Britain?

      What you have done with those solar fairy lights has given me a magical visual. Frogs are fun cause they um 'toad' me so. I bet Joe and you, when not staring into each other's eyes, are totally enchanted by such a scene. I believe we saw those lights on the posting in question.

      Did you know a *poof* is a British word for "footstool"? Okay, I'm going now... Thank you, lotta joy.

    1. Hi Munir,

      For sure and I really love the solar lights. My human does try to respect the balance of nature. It's a bit ironic he had to use indoor power to recharge the lamps that are supposed to be charged by solar energy. Of course, a bit of sunshine does help :)

  54. wow, i like the new pic up there. luckily it doesn't take up the whole top of the page...oh, yeah it does! but at least it is beautiful enough to do so. so, yes, solar lamps. i have a few in my garden i don't care for them myself. i always have to change the batteries, so i say, solar my volumptious butt! ok, ok, maybe i just need to buy new ones. just send me yours.
    i'm a little hurt that geoffrey moved on and wed a fairy. i mean really? just rude. glad to see penny still is keeping you company. you need to stop posting him next time, and post those cool old photos of you!! that'd be fun! you'd get those comments you like, you know.."cool" "looks good" "great post" and then people don't have to actually pretend to read because they are admiring you! isn't that what you wanted??

    oh, funny day. i should post late at night more often. i get too smart this time of night. goodnight dear bloggy, facebook, email friend. give the penny a pat and a treat and kick the fairy for me. gnome stealer!

    your welcome for the best comment of the night!

    1. Alleged human,Tammy,

      My human is delighted you like the header at the top of the page. It might be a good idea if the photo took up the entire blog site whenever my human attempts to write. Perhaps we should change the header to your face, or the face of a Sasquatch. Tough decision. Inside the solar lamps are rechargeable batteries. If you have a recharging machine, you might find that boosts them back up so that if you do actually get some sunshine, they should light up. Although you know they can be a pain in the solar butt.

      Geoffrey offered to wed you. Then this little chick, Fidelina offered him a frolicking good time inside a mushroom house. Human, I'm actually keeping my human company. I think you might like to see photos of Gary that you can turn into giant posters and have all around your home. Yeah, that would be just amazing for you.

      Yep, you should post late at night more often. It certainly was worth waiting for such an incredible comment from my human's bloggy, 'Farcebook' and email friend.

      I shall give my human a pat and teach him how to roll over and play dead.

      Great comment. Thanks for sharing!

  55. (Sorry I'm late, I'm still catching up from the weekend)

    Some great pics there, Penny, and I know you're the one who probably taught Gary how to hold the camera, right?? :)

    (Nice view there, Gary...well done!)

    1. Greetings Mark,

      Never worry about catching up, my human friend. Heck, my human is so far behind, I've taken over for him :)

      You would be correct. I did indeed teach Gary how to hold a camera. I even showed him where the "on" button is. That helps a lot!

      My human thanks you and now he's transported the solar lamps that were recharged back into the garden.

      Pawsitive wishes,

      Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar! :)

  56. I like solar lamps. We have them on our back porch, but I like your human's version. I think faeries and whatnot will like those quite a bit.

    1. Hi Shannon,

      Penny is sleepy and has trusted me to reply to your comment. Solar lamps, when they actually work in Britain, do cast a lovely ambience. The wee folks are rejoicing in the glowing light.

      Thank you, Shannon.

      Penny's human,

      Gary

I do try to comment back to each commenter individually. However, I might have to shorten my replies or give a group thank you. That way, I can spend more time commenting on your blogs. Thank you and peace, my friend.
