These boots were made for gardening: my Hunter wellies



I see that skirmishofwit and other people who always know what’s hot are buying brightly coloured Hunter boots. A quick trawl around the blogs (via Google Blog Search) shows that even the writers of dedicated shoe blogs are at it. I was rather taken with fashionistacat! Call me old fashioned (you will) but I don’t think wellies are comfortable walking gear; give me leather every time. For gardening, though, they can’t be beat and here’s a post I wrote on the subject nearly three years ago. The boots were already old then (note authentic mud) and are still going strong. Anyone who feels like posting a photo of their boots may regard this as a meme.
