The sun finally came out today which gave me the opportunity to paint some plastic pots to put in our garden. I don’t know about you, but I’m craving some color after days and days of rain and grey skies.
I got the idea to paint these containers from one of our readers named Missy. After seeing this photo showing the pots that we placed at the end of some of our raised beds last summer, she wondered if they could be painted.
So a few weeks ago Leo’s brother Jim started spray painting some of the pots. After he put a few in the garden, we decided that we were going to have a whole rainbow of colored pots in the garden. It’s all part of our plan to make the garden as beautiful as possible.
I painted about 2 inches down into the inside of the pots. We’ll be able to plant some spring flowers and lettuces into the pots in just a few weeks. I have no idea how these painted pots will hold up in the sun and rain, but right now they are adding some color to our garden.
How about you? Are you adding some color to your world, too?
