One thing I noticed at the Garden Tradeshows I attended earlier this year was the color options! It was so happy and cheery! Everywhere I looked you could find your basic outdoor tools in any color you wanted. Now that the local gardening shops in my area are opening up and its time to start planting, I’m noticing this trend made its way to the stores. It makes me smile… and I have to think that during these hard economic times that we’ve been going through, if something makes you smile and is a useful tool you need as well – then great! Buy it! 🙂 Do you need a watering can, a hose, a tomato cage, a garden fence, gardening gloves, pots… you name it… you can have… the tough decision lies in what COLOR you want! And really, that’s a great dilema to have in my oppinion. Look at these fun options:
Dramm started it all for me years ago with their hoses.
But then this weekend I got to see their hose sprayers, sprinklers and watering cans too! How fun!
I do wish I owned a home so I could justify purchasing a hose and sprinkler! I guess I’ll keep it simple and stick to the watering can for my deck pots.
Here are some fun eco friendly and colorful pot that I found online at NYBG Shop:
And how can you not love these retro style Bullet Planter:
Color is even offered in your gardening gloves – plant in fashion!
Atlas Gloves are pretty great in my oppinion, the fit is great – as if I wasn’t even wearing the gloves! I am not an expert on gloves, but I believe it has to do with their ‘palm dipped’ glove technique/application.
Now here’s a little gem I stumbled upon – talk about jazzing up your tool lines! Alice Supply Co offers everything from hoses to hammer to plungers to trowels! And not your standard tools… but these little household gems are jazzed up in all sorts of fun color pallets and patterns!
Here is my personal favorite thing being offered this season – and for me, they are the HOT NEW thing for color options in your garden – or in my case, on my deck (credit miguel)! Here’s a fun selection of colorful tools from Glamos:
I hope you are all as inspired by these fun bright summer color options as I am! And of course, I can’t resist throwing this fun picture into the mix – courtesy of Allsop Home & Garden!
