explore Time To grow ★ Gardening is one of summer’s true pleasures. These items just might make your efforts even more rewarding. By Lynn Coulter Water Colors Birds and butterflies can’t resist the sound of splashing water, and neither can gardeners. Water bubbles up and out of the Atlantic Water Gardens Color Changing Vase Fountain during the day. At night, lights make the vase glow in 48 colors and 16 different patterns. You set the speed and intensity by remote control. Add on an optional basin to catch the water as it cascades over the sides. Visit the website to find a local retailer. Vases start at $260, basins and pump kits extra. Green Means Grow We’ve got smart phones and smart cars, so why not smart pots? You don’t need a green thumb to grow herbs, flowers, or small vegetables in a Click and Grow — just add batteries. Then fill the water tank, find a sunny spot, and electronic technology handles the rest. Built-in sensors blink a blue light when it’s time to water; a red light blinks when the batteries are low. A green blink means everything’s fine. The pot uses a replaceable cartridge filled with seeds, nutrients, and special growing software. Starter kit with mini-tomato cartridge, $70 ; refills from $20 Feet First Warmer weather brings sunshine — but you can always bet on a sudden rain shower or a stretch of soggy days. So before heading into the garden, be sure you’re wearing something comfortable and dry. Sloggers Waterproof Rain Shoes provide heavy-duty tread for firm footing even when you’ve got a bit of muck to deal with. The waterproof shoes, boots, and clogs have high-performance insoles to keep feet comfy, even after a long day of weeding. Sloggers offers a large array of styles, colors, and patterns in both men’s and women’s sizes. Prices start at $31. 56 MAY 2013
