All Fall Down
Go ahead and bring autumn indoors. The Switchables Fall Tree cover is guaranteed not to get leaves all over your floor.
The fused-glass process enables Switchables to create a new generation of nightlight covers like none you've ever seen before. Instead of being folded and soldered like traditional Switchables covers, these pieces of glass are fused together with flash heat for more brilliant colors and intricate designs with no metal borders. Bits and strips of glass are bonded to a slightly curved, clear or colored background panel.
You can identify a fused-glass Switchables cover by its "SF" item number. Traditional Switchables start with "SW".
This is not a self-contained night light. Switchables stained glass night light covers are designed to be used with the Switchables Nightlight Fixture (sold separately). Switchables are "switchable" because you can easily swap any one of our covers onto the same simple fixture. You can also use your Switchables cover as a suncatcher, a Christmas ornament, or with any other kind of light source. To display your Switchables cover in a window, add the optional suction cup. Switchables make gift-giving easy: Start your recipient out with a fixture and one or two covers, then buy him or her new covers on future gift-giving occasions.
Are you curious...?
Why do deciduous trees drop their leaves? When you consider the energy required to regrow another crop each year, you might think that evergreens are smarter trees. But evergreens lose more water during the winter months and are apt to take some damage from grazing animals, like deer. Shedding their leaves and resting helps deciduous plants handle extreme cold or drought without fending off predators. It's apparently more energy-efficient to replace their leaves annually than to keep repairing them all year long. A blanket of fallen leaves also recycles nutrients, traps moisture, alters acidity, suppresses competing plants, and generally improves a tree's immediate environment. Given the number of times the strategy has evolved among woody plants, it must offer a substantial survival advantage. And, in fact, many trees flower and disperse their pollen when they don't have leaves to get in the way.
