Habitat 4 Solar Decorative Bee Lights
For a whimsical fairy-garden feel, try this set of four solar-powered bee lights. Each one has an LED light inside the glass yellow body, and a little crocodile clip at the top of the wire cage, so you can hang it from a tree branch in your garden, or pin it up on the fence.
