I have to thank Lou from the Archers at the Larches for pointing me in the direction of Garden Girl. And these hats. I don’t know about you, but I always feel very grown up when I’m gardening. It’s like putting the washing on the line – I’m not faking it I really AM grown up enough for this house/wife/mother/home malarky.
But gardening in a pretty hat? Now you’re talking. Graceful, elegant and horticulturally wise, serenely floating around the lawns (this is MY fantasy, okay? Of course there’d be ‘lawns’ and not a rough grassy area that’s been kicked up and slid across by small footballers and burned by a wee-ing dog), quietly deadheading roses, maintaining absolute and effortless wisteria control, kneeling elegantly to tug up the odd weed, hair carelessly tucked behind one ear in an oh-so-flattering casual manner… *cough*
Back n the real world I love this hat. So there.
The Pretty Hat For Gardening Elegantly In is £21.95 over on GardenGirl right now. Careful – if you’ve aspirations to be a gardener, once you’re in there you may be sometime.
