Jennifer, the brick was painted before I got there. A new addition in the back was painted to match by a local paint company. I think they add and remove paint simultaneously.

They are from Restoration Hardware and are outdoor LED candles with a rubber protective sleeve. They sit on beds of dried lavender. If left outside, they will rill with water so save the jar lids!

No. There is no liner, but the bottom of the planting cavity is filled with gravel all the way down to provide great drainage for the plants.

good point chookchook2 and a good reason to always use a GFCI on the plug or power strip you use! Don't "bundle" the cords or have them knotted up, just loosely push as much of the string as needed into the globe without overcrowding. It really doesn't take much to achieve the soft glow you are looking for.

Lanterns are a beautiful way to light your outdoor living areas or entrance ways. These Terraflame Georgian Collection Lanterns are elegant and easy to use because they use environmentally friendly sunjel fuel. Check them out at http://www.allbackyardfun.com/terraflame-georgian-lanterns/.

It's a dwarf mondo grass. Ophiopogon japonicus 'Nana' only gets a couple of inches tall and will fill in over time.
