Christmas lights in the garden

Driving home in the dusk yesterday evening I saw that a house down the road already has it's chains of twinkling lights strung along the shrubs and trees in the front garden - and it's still only November! 

They do look lovely - little white twinkles among the branches image

    Haven't seen any outdoor light yet but some homes have trees in the windows and things stuck on the windows.

    The house opposite me put theirs up two weeks ago!  I must admit they are very pretty and tastefully done though.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • We keep our lights up all year but only switch on when visitors come and when I am out after dark my husband turns them on .It's very welcoming to come around the corner and see them lighting up our dark path as we don't have street lights.

    Two houses in neighbouring streets have had theirs up for a week already although they do like to go to town with the old light fest.

    Anyhoo, I felt somewhat tardy and switched on the chicken fence lights this evening - on the most elegant twinkle/flash mode of courseimage

    I have an artificial half tree that I put on the kitchen wall and when I am coming back from walking the dog on a dark morning the lights guide me back and give a lovely welcomeimage Just like yours do butterfly6

    I couldn't find our Crimbo lights last year so bought some new ones.  The day after I'd strung up all the new lights I found the old onesimage  Any suggestions as to how I can use 2 sets of lights one with 300 and the other with 240 bulbs?
