Gardening Rule No. 13

Lady in the Garden by Emile Claus

Gardening can have a detrimental effect on a person's clothing sense.

Yesterday afternoon I found myself walking down to the coffee shop after having spent the morning tidying the gardens. It wasn't until I was walking home that I caught a glimpse of myself in a store window:

  • bright turquoise mid-calf t-shirt dress
  • man's blue denim work shirt
  • variegated yellow ankle socks
  • red clogs
  • linen hat with a large maroon silk flower drooping off the front brim
On the best of days my style could be considered slightly eccentric.  But put me anywhere near a garden and apparently I have a complete fashion meltdown.

Is there a "Queer Eye for the Straight Gardener"?
