I MUST give Carol at May Dreams Gardens credit for inspiring me to do this. Her original HOE collection is absolutely fascinating. Go take a look, won't you?
my favorite cowboy straw hat on a yucca
TEXAS is HOT and sometimes a cap just won't cut it. Have you ever noticed what people wear in other hot climates? Besides a typical straw hat, I've found some unusual ones for my straw hat collection.
I'm showing my straw hat collection in the garden rather than 'modeling them' because:
B)it's about the hats, not me
C)people walking by with their dogs is enough laughter to bear...I don't need the whole gardening world laughing as well.
D)the plants look good in straw hats...maybe I should just leave them out in the garden!
'Mi Sombrero' on a variegated yucca. Sombra means shade in Spanish....so in a way this is a Shade Maker hat.
This is my fake Australian 'Bush' hat looking stylish on this yaupon. I'm still looking for a REAL Australian bush hat, but this is all I've got for now.
This is my rare rice paddy hat sitting on a dead rice paper plant. I can't wait for the next rain so I can see if it really keeps the rain off.
This is my Gangster Straw Hat for pulling mean weeds.
SAID with James Cagney accent holding a garden trowel......"Schtick um up, see. Yo'are goin' get it, see. No weeds aw goin' make it here in this gaaaden,see?"
This is my farmer hat for feeding our chickens. We have six friendly hens.
This is my Amish-style straw hat.
And this is my Tree Cap used when I need to water my trees or trim branches.
Thanks for stopping by Tropical Texana. Hope I brought you a smile.
