Cultivation Cuteness

Do you love to garden? I must admit for most parts, I find it to be quite relaxing and often a great stress reliever. I can take out my indignant attitude out on the soil; pulling, tugging, wielding my shears as I snip and prune. At first it feels great, the transformation is fueling my inner fire. As time flies bye, and the muscles tighten, mosquito bites cover my body, you can hear a few well chosen "four letter" words being spouted throughout my quiet neighborhood.

I would very much love my landscape to resemble the fabulous grounds of the infamous "Grey Garden's, revamped by current owners, Ben Bradlee and Sally Quinn.

my gardening tools would be stored ever so perfectly in this romantic shed.
Perhaps I would use it for tea parties, or kick back with a
gin & tonic in my hammock? It would certainly sport a chandelier.

whether or not your yard looks like .....

or the resemblance of your grounds are more closely linked to that of

or your idea of gardening is limited to the great indoors?

wouldn't it be much more fun to feed your green thumb with these
gorgeous hued garden implements?
I ask you, who wouldn't embrace a "plum" garden hose?
don't like plum?
Dramm, a company that's been around since the early 1940's, has created a line called Colorstorm. A fun colored variety of watering tools.-watering cans, wands, sprinklers and garden hoses. Prices start @ $10. to $65. Their products come with a lifetime guarantee & made in the U.S.A. I found a good shopping source to be shopping.com & Rittenhouse.
maybe, just maybe with these brightly coloured, cheerful additions to my gardening arsenol, I will not be flinging four letter words quite as often...

happy gardening
{go forth & shop responsibly}
cheer up those routine responsibilities
with colour

I would like one of EACH of those watering cans. And I'd like to somehow display them in my garden - wouldn't that be pretty? Hanging over a bench or a table or something? Love them.

Love all the colorful gardenware, though I'll be honest and admit that I don't have much of the green thumb. I love the way a beautiful garden looks (and I really like that sort of overgrown Secret Garden look), but I'm afraid I haven't the patience to do it myself. Fortunately for me, the hubby is much more landscaping-inclined.

I wish I had a green thumb and a space to garden, but unfortunately I have somewhat of a brown thumb, and mostly concrete outdoor territory. Oh well. For now I'll have to live vicariously through posts like these! Thanks so much for the comment my lovely lady!
