Buy Pink Gardening Apparel and Accessories Online
Who says women can’t look fashionable or indulge in a statement of feminine power while working in the garden? Who says garden gloves, safety glasses, boots, and shoes can’t be colors that aren’t dull and drab? Granted, garden gloves will never have the sexy appeal of satin elbow-length ball gown gloves, and garden shoes and clogs will never come with that flattering stiletto heel. But we surely can add color to ourselves, and also contribute to breast cancer awareness, by wearing pink garden apparel and making use of pink garden accessories.
Say goodbye to boring brown, tepid tan, banal beige, characterless khaki, and gone-to-seed green with this selection of pink garden apparel and accessories you can buy online.
Pink Garden Gloves
Working in the garden without gloves is a death sentence for hands. Dirt under the nails, chipped and broken finger nails, nicks and cuts that open the door to infection, and dry, chapped skin are the prices paid without the protection of garden gloves. Why wear tedious tan, boring blue, or banal brown when you can sport pink?When making your selection, think about whether you’d like cotton, leather, or synthetic fabric and whether the manufacturer indicates that the gloves are washable. Also consider size; some styles only come in one-size-fits-all.
Pink Garden Footwear
Garden footwear has a two-fold purpose: it is designed to protect your feet from water and dirt, and to protect your indoor carpets and flooring from garden grit when you leave your garden shoes at the door.
Many garden footwear styles feature open heels, which are ideal for easy-on, easy-off wearing.
I’ve had my purple “rubber muckies” for years now, a fabulous gift from my daughter. Not only do I wear them in the garden, I also use them in the winter, getting around in the snow and ice, because of their deep treads and thick soles. Alas, they are on their way out, having had a long and useful life. My next pair will be pink.
Protect Your Eyes with Pink Safety Glasses
Safety glasses are a must when working with power tools, and I think we all know that. But even when working with traditional hand tools in the garden, a number of objects can fly unexpectedly into your eyes—rose thorns when pruning roses, dirt clods when transplanting or weeding, even droplets of products you spray on your plants. Some plants, such as impatiens and broom, produce exploding seeds; if you work in the garden with you face close to these plants when their seeds are ripe and ready to fly, much better to be safe than sorry.
Pink Knee Pads and Kneeling Cushions
Knee pads or a kneeling cushion are absolute essentials if you customarily get down on your hands and knees to work in the garden. To all you young, powerful, healthy, and invincible-feeling women out there, let me assure you that mistreating your knees early in life can lead to long-term problems.You may already have several kneeling pads, as I do, and perhaps you even double them up if you are working on a concrete or stone surface. But are yours pink?

Pink Was the Color for Boys?
Did you know that some associated pink with boys from about the turn of the century until the World War II era? And you guessed it, blue was the color for girls. Take a look at what Cecil Adams has to say about the history and evolution of children’s clothing styles and colors, and about boys in pink.
Deciding Which Pink Garden Apparel Items and Accessories To Buy Online
One of the most valuable shopping aids the Internet delivers is the comment or review feature. People who already bought the item that interests you have the opportunity, with many vendor sites, to express their opinions about their purchases. It’s well worth your while to read those comments and reviews. Think about this valuable information in these terms: If you are in a retail store, and you want an unbiased opinion, whom can you ask? Pretty much, no one.
Although a picture may be worth a thousand words, it is a sad fact that some item photos aren’t worth even one word or two. Follow up the visual with the verbal, and read the seller’s product specifications in detail. Also, search the Internet for more information about that specific product. The effort you put in will be worth your time.
