Let there be lights

About 2 weeks ago I hired a couple of teenagers to weed our flower beds.  The weeds had gotten out of control and Spouse & I have neither the time nor the interest in removing them ourselves.  Plus, I think its nice to give teenagers an opportunity to earn 'pocket money' like I did when I was a teen.

Yesterday Spouse & I took advantage of the absolutely incredibly beautiful weather to try and prevent some of the weeds from returning, and to make the beds look prettier.  We cut some landscaping fabric to fit, spread a couple of bags of mulch, and then installed some solar powered landscape lights.
Here's one of the cleaned up beds in the daylight

Here's the same bed (from a different angle) at night

Here's another bed with more of the new lights
We're happy with the way it turned out.  Having the teens get us started with the weeding meant we could finish up and not kill ourselves trying to complete the project.
