In our front yard, we have this plant that gets leaves and these bloomy-tiny flowery things in the spring and through the summer. (I think the plant is called Sedum.) When fall comes, the leaves fall off and the bloomy things turn an ugly brown. The other day, I thought I should turn them a pretty color to cheer up the long, cold winter we have in Northern Utah. Notice the frost on the dead plant. It hasn't been above freezing for a few days now:(
I got out the cheap red spray paint we had on hand (I'd bought it at the dollar store a while back) and decided to go to work. With newspapers behind the blossoms to prevent the paint from going on the house, I went to work!!!
Here's the first coat of paint! Looks so much better than the dead, frosted rose bush!
After the second spray, the plant looks like it has red blossoms instead of brown! So much happier than drab and dead! Why did I wait until the end of January to do this?
Here is a picture turned sideways. I don't know why blogger did this!!! Notice the pop of red!!! I think this would look beautiful in pink or yellow or purple too!
Do you have any type of plants that you can spray paint this winter?
