They also have them available with the solar panel attached with a long wire so you can place it quite a distance away from the spot light where it might get more sun during the day.

philipchircop: CELEBRATING FRANCIS Today the Catholic church celebrates the feast of Francis of Assisi. To celebrate this day I prayed with this poem early this morning. Walk with these simple verses through this day and let the spirit of Francis wash over you. WHEN I RETURNED FROM ROME Abird took flight.And a flower in a field whistled at meas I passed. I drankfrom a stream of clear water.And at night the sky untied her hair and I fell asleepclutching a tressof God’s. When I returned from Rome, all said to me,“Tell us the great news,” and with great excitement, I did: “A flower in a field whistled,and at night the sky untied her hair andI fell asleep clutching asacred tress …” Francis of Assisi as rendered byDaniel Ladinsky in Love Poems from God, page 32 Photo | I am not aware of the original source of this sculpture of Francis but I know it is found in Saints Peter and Paul Cemetery in Naperville, Illinois. If anybody knows the name of the artist who sculpted this wonderful image of Francis please let me know.
St Francis of Assisi. Don't know who the artist is unfortunately but it is simply beautiful

Street in Bonn, Germany ~ After cold days of winter, the earth comes back to life. Finally spring comes to Germany and flowers begin to bloom. These trees are the famous cherry blossoms which are in fact the most beautiful sight here in the streets of Bonn. It’s hard to believe that places like this exist in real-life, but they do. There are only two to three weeks when these trees are at this beautiful stage of blossoming and you can enjoy walking on this stunning street.
Cherry street in Bonn, Germany. This trail is located in the city of Bonn, peaceful beauty of the cherry blossom trees by 2 sides. The best time is spring. That is a classic example of the impact of colour in landscaping. Beautiful, isn't it?
