Those rose thorns always rip the paper-thin skin on the backs of my hands but doI wear gardening gloves? No! They are too bulky and awkward to work in.
So I try to be careful and work slowly so as not to get caught.
But today I think I have come up with a brilliant idea
We were wandering around a sporting goods store today with our grandson when I spied some fingerless gloves designed for bicycle riders. They have nice light stretchy fabric on one side and thick leathery fabric on the other. I put them on with the thick fabric on the backs of my hands even though the sales boy thought I was dippy because the thick side is supposed to protect the cyclist's palms.
They feel great! I can work in THEM!
I defy those savage thorns to ever rip me again. Shame I have almost finished the pruning.
