This is Geoline’s new gardening hat. I am under that bright guava pink hat somewhere scouring local tree nurseries, hardware stores, gardening sections, botanical gardens, construction sites, forests and yard. Maybe you’ve seen me?
I never could find a decent wide brim straw hat for the garden at typical shopping haunts and department stores in my area. My husband actually found this wonderful guava pink hat at Bass Pro Shop in Memphis, Tennessee. I would have never thought to shop at a guy’s sporting goods store for a hat!
The hat is by Scala and is actually rated with SPF-40! Amazing! Not only is the hat a delicious tropical color, it has practical UV protection for gardening under the hot Memphis summer sun. The hat effectively keeps sweat out of my eyes and provides excellent UV sun protection for my face while I am haunting botanical nurseries for cool tree and shrub specimens for designing bonsai and Asian landscapes.
I added the Sith Lord embroidered patch for fun because my husband uses Darth Vader’s Empire Theme on his new Blackberry cell phone for all my incoming calls. He could not locate a cool Hawaiian ring tone at the time, so he randomly selected Darth Vader’s Empire theme.
Now whenever I exchange messages with my husband, I sign off:
