Memoirs of a Hot Afternoon

professional footwear provided by Dollar Dazzle

The cool thing about running a mail order collector's nursery is that not many people see you. Except the ladies at the bank and the Post Office people, and they never seemed to mind. Farm casual is the dress code when you are half soaked and covered with mud. This allows you to shock everyone in town should they happen to see you clean, dry and dressed like a normal employed person. These events cause great concern and you are likely to be asked what exactly you are up to.

My red polished toes and star spangled flip flops were not the lens's subject. I was trying to get a clear shot of two hotshot new Echinacea releases without the deck railing behind them. Naturally, the breeze I had been praying for all day came up at this precise moment. Just as I was going to delete it from the
computer the image seemed to beg to be black and white.

Some days it really pays to listen to that little voice in your head.

Oh, and in case you were wondering ...

this is chilly day - hole digging - lawn mowing footwear. The laces are just there to keep the tongues from obnoxiously flopping about. Tying them makes it a hassle to constantly dump soil out of them. Easy on - easy off, just right for the woman on the go.

Check back in a couple of days if you like the Memoirs of a Hot Afternoon photo. The note cards featuring this snazzy art photo will be available for purchase right here from the Guilty Gardener.
