Solar Stainless Steel Pathway Lights
I've been disappointed by promises of (lackluster) solar lights. The Four Seasons Courtyard Pathway Light ($3.97 plus tax) is an exception. Not strong enough to read by, it emanates rather a soft, lingering glow from dusk through much of the night. About 16 inches tall, this post holds an array that captures sunlight and shines despite rain. I can't get enough of them from the local True Value hardware store.
