This is a long overdue post! Just hours after I joined Twitter, Ethel Gloves had a Twitter-follow contest and I won a pair of their lovely gloves! I persuaded my husband to take some pictures so you can see them in action. I chose "Jubilee", size L, and they are already caked in mud, but that's the sign of good gloves, right?
Digging a hole for my new Dianthus
Me, gloves, and Dianthus, plus bonus greyhound. You'd be amazed at how many of our pictures have a bonus greyhound in them.
The best thing about the gloves is how flexible they are. I can easily grip a trowel or clippers and the rubbery bits on the fingers hold tools and slippery pots firmly. All in all, I am very happy with my new gloves, and it does lend an air of quaintness to wear something so pretty while gardening! Now all I need is a wide-brimmed hat and a parasol! I look forward to putting the gloves through their paces this summer. Thanks, Ethel Gloves!
