    Andrea A thanks for the input. Yes it is definitely from sprinkler water which is irrigation water. Which is why I was wondering about the "yard art" so many of us have, am I the only one who gets water spotting?

    We have a private well and live where the water has a lot of iron in it. So I deal with rust color on some of the lighter colored garden junk art -- mostly I repaint or just leave it. A bigger problem is in a very dry year when we have to water gardens

    These are awesome! These lights are starting to sell for higher prices in the vintage shops in our area--never thought of hanging them outside. Now I have a reason to buy some! :-)

    WD40 is usually found in the lubricant isle of Walmart, or other places that have car parts/supplies. It's a water displacement product, and it takes care of hard water spots. I use it everywhere in my house; shower, kitchen sing, stainless steel
