I've tried, but just can't get used to wearing a sun hat. Do you wear one Sheryl?

Nah, best I can do is a visor, and then that gives me a headache within a half hour.

I can wear a straw hat at the beach, where it really does help keep cool. But with moving around gardening, It always seems to make me sweat more.

Sally, must have been a Rambi knock off as the leg I lost was black! I'm always in a quandry over light color for coolness and tick spotting or dark color for "shows less dirt" Shows less dirt usually wins out

Here are my two favorite hats which it took me ages to come across. They are woven out of hemp fiber and are surprisingly cool. They repel water and I can also wet them down for some evaporative cooling. They can be crushed and molded into shape... The muted one has a wire along the outside of the brim so is even more shapeable..

Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Sheryl, I couldn't understand why you thought my hat was see through. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Sometimes this cubits software is tricky. You should have s p e l l e d it out for me. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing It's up there now.


Judy, you had DSO and I both cracking up over the Rambi knock off. Rolling on the floor laughing He was cracking up last night about Sally's comment. He wants to know how we meet all of these really funny people online. I told him we gardeners come equipped with laughdar! You' re right about the colors and the ticks, but I do the same as you and end up going for the most dirt free look. Vanity wins again over sensibility. Thumbs down

Love your hats. I have 1 of those that I use on the beach, I will get it out and try it. Thumbs up It would help to keep my hair color from lightening so much. Might save some $ at the Beauty parlor, Hilarious! not to mention preventing a heat stroke.

I won't any pants or shorts, etc, at all that don't have pockets. I don't carry a purse. Just a small flat leather cc holder with drivers license and some cash, so pocket is necessary.

Pam, I'm always amazed at women that don't carry purses. I've gotten away from the big ones and go for light and always try for crossbody style, except for very dress up. My pockets get pretty heavy when I'm in the garden. If I added keys and cc holder and a few other must haves, my pants might fall down. Hilarious!

When it's really hot out, I need to wear something thick and absorbant around my head near the hair line to keep the sweat from running into my eyes. Sometimes I used a hair band that attaches to itself with velcro. It is made of Terry Cloth and was part of a spa kit. It works pretty well. It is however no longer white. I have to wash it so often that I can't wait until I've got enough whites for a load.

Great hat ideas,, hats are a good idea for the heat and the hair color (Oh vanity, when will I ever get brave and be natural?)

Speaking of heat, I've never used, but some like, a neckroll cooler thingy. Basically, I've been too busy this summer to spend enough time in the garden to need further cooling.

By the way, cooling your hands/ wrists is an effective way to cool your core. I saw it on TV , military research

Also saw at Home Depot--a hose attachemnt that gives you a standing 'mister' Neato! Your hummingbirds might really like it too..

and I also am considering the cc holder plan--I get tired of lugging the purse just to go in the food store. All I need is pockets for cell phone and my payment method and hang my keys on a loop.
Now with cell phones so common, my daughter's formal dress even had POCKETS in the side seams. Amazing!

Hilarious! That is amazing. Good info about keeping the hands cool. That's another reason why I like the Atlas Nitrile gloves. I find them to be less sweat producing than say, leather gloves. My hands swell a lot in the humidity. They expand with the swelling.
During the hot weather I repeatedly go into the house and rinse my face, neck, arms and hands with cool water. Maybe I should look into a cool neckroll too. It would keep so much sweat from dripping down my shirt and make me feel so much less yucky, especially if I have to run out for an errand.

I don't understand why purses are now the size of over night bags. It's harder & harder to find smaller lighter ones.

Has anyone else seen those belt-purses around? There were some really nice looking leather ones, but I ain't about due to pay like $140 or something for them. I also never wear belts, that would be a switch for me.

sheryl, I got a couple of those last year at the BEBE Boutique when they were on sale. They were about $20 to $30 each. I got a black and a silver one. Sometimes they are not big enough for me though. They are another useful item for the garden though, if you have no pockets and don't want an apron. I always have my cell phone & chap stick with me in the garden.

Huh - I'll have to Google them again and see if they've come down at all. They were being marketed through one of the high-end horse mags (like there's a low-end, lol...) so I expect that you could find them for less - didn't think it would be BEBE, though!
