I love terracotta pots. I think my plants are happiest in them and I usually just paint them to suit my taste. When I keep them outside, they wear and have a sort of aged look to them too. I usually use spray paint, but the temps outside aren't conducive to that, so I just brushed on a couple of coats of latex. I have quite a few pots that aren't in the best shape and in need of painting. Some are plastic, but have a nice shape so I use spray paint for plastic on those.
I don't really have a green thumb so I bring my plants outside in the summer and that seems to make them happy.
It's a rainy, dreary day here in Virginia. It's days like these I'm glad I work at home. I hope all this rain brings us some spring flowers soon.
