What a Wonderful Swirl

Just like flowers need the sunlight to bloom, so too do these plantable, 100% recycled glass pieces by Canadian glass artist Stephen Kitras. With the help of the sun's rays, these vibrant swirled spheres can bring enchantment to your yard, patio, or garden day and night. Each elegant, hand-blown orb conceals a LED light that illuminates the artist's serpentine strokes of rich color even under a veil of darkness. Handmade in Canada.Sold Individually.

It is winter but in the spring I look forward to putting it out in my garden. I am a little worried about the post that supports the glass bulb. It is a little week and we get some strong winds.

    Comments about SOLAR LIGHT GARDEN STAKE - SWIRL GLOBES:

    I loved this gift. When the spring came, I put it in the planter on my deck. It stopped working after a month. And when I pulled it out of the planter in Oct, it snapped. I was hoping I could get the rod and light replaced and if I can put the glass globe I have on the replacement part.
