Glamour in the Garden

I've read that the late Katherine S. White, author of the book of gardening essays called Onward and Upward in the Garden, gardened in "a spotless cotton dress or a handsome tweed skirt and jacket" while wearing her best Ferragamo shoes. Lately, Mollie, a very active septuagenarian volunteer, has been showing up for duty on our Wednesday morning work days looking like she borrowed a few items from Mrs. White's closet. She claims the chilly mornings require a scarf. I suspect she has an elegant luncheon planned for later in the day.


  1. Mollie's style is effortless. She looks amazing! I love her smile. Xx

    1. She brings a wonderful dynamic and energy to our Wednesday mornings!

  2. I've been known to garden lightly in my professional clothes if I think changing will take too long and rob me of daylight. :o)She looks great!
