ladies' gardening gloves

This week we ripped off all of the ivy that was covering the garage and menacing the house, triffid-style. It was a ton of work, but very satisfying. Best of all, I got to try out my brand new Foxglove gardening gloves. I found them looking for something that would protect my wrists and lower arms better while working outside—everything I found was big, leather and spendy, until I came across these. They're like 50s dress gloves and come in tons of colors so you can look all glamorous; they're machine washable (although I'll need spares so I can toss them in the laundry and still have a set available); and very flexible so you can feel what you're doing (not waterproof though, if you hate getting your hands wet). Surprisingly, they do not feel as flimsy as they look—I was handling some rough bits and never felt a thing. Seriously, I can't recommend these enough. A tip though—look on their site for a local shop carrying them. My local price was much better than the best internet price I found!
