A splash of color

In the last few seasons, I've noticed colored metal pieces for the garden. Shepherd's hooks, tomato cages and the such. I really like them! Unless you have a super serious gardening aesthetic, why not infuse a splash of color beyond the blossoms?

I decided to paint some of our tomato cages and stakes. I chose electric blue. The paint I used is an enamel spray paint. I think the enamel will hold up a little better than regular latex paint.

I painted a tomato cage and several stakes.

My son chose fire engine red...he did his tomato cage and a few stakes also.

Here is how they are looking in the garden....I have one trellis in the back there that has not gotten the paint treatment. Maybe next year?

I love this blue!

And the red ones.

It definitely adds a kick to the garden. What color would you choose?
