|I am always sorry when I go into the rose gardens without gloves. I bought a pair of leather gardening gloves at the Philadelphia Flower Show, but unfortunately, they are not elbow length and I always look as though I've been in a cat fight.
I really should care more about what I wear when I'm gardening. I posted somewhere else, that my neighbors must all pass my corner house to get into the cul de sac. They wave to me as they go by. The first time that I was invited to a home goods party (a few months after we moved here), they looked shocked to see me and said that "I cleaned up real good". Sometimes I go to Suzy's to help with gardening and my son in law takes pictures of me and comments that he wonders where I find my outfits.
I also posted somewhere that the old woman across the street commented the first time that we were in close proximity to each other at a neighbor's gathering. She said "I usually see you from so far away that I didn't really recognize your face, but I probably would recognize your butt because you're always bending to pull weeds or something. My husband wonders if she was watching when I got a very low plumber's sunburn one day when I was working in my really soaked sweat pants that had pulled way down from my waist.
