A Light in the Forest

My husband and I have been working hard to make our backyard into a restful retreat and felt a Japanese lantern would complete this corner.  However, when researching the prices of traditional lanterns I learned they can cost thousands of dollars.  My husband decided to create his own lantern and this is the final result.  I think he did a wonderful job!  Plus, utilizing stones we had in our yard is a green alternative to purchasing a carved lantern.  Placing a candle holder in the open section in the middle casts a relaxing glow and creates a soothing ambiance.
