What's Fun About a Rainy Day in the Garden?

Cute Rain Boots!
Today was one of those great gardening days; it was drizzly and not too cool and the perfect day for fall weeding and cleanup. But, it was a bit too wet for garden clogs - unless you stayed on a hard surface. Not a problem because I was actually eager to go outside with my new-enough-to-still-be-fun rain boots. Of course rain boots must be waterproof and slip-resistant, but once you have that out of the way you're free to look for a great design. In the past few years the solemn black and green boots have been joined by lots of great colors and patterns - and at all price points. Now, will my discount fashion store boots last like a good pair of Wellies? I doubt it, but then I don't wear them everyday - and never in the summer because it's too hot - so we'll see. This is their second year and so far they're as good as new (well, except for those permanent stains from The Pumpkin-Compost Affair).

If you need a little motivation to turn the compost or muck through the vegetable garden on messy days, consider some fun boots - you'll be glad you did.

If you like the boots photo, check out Be Funky. You, too, can be 'cartoonized'.
