What a great idea, Michal. I was just contemplating ordering some.

I have some nasty shrub roses that were given to me a few years ago that I want to remove. They have had MAYBE one bloom a year on them ( in a good year ), but have many monstrous thorns on them. Oh, how I could use some Fox Gloves to help me remove them.

On a more serious note, I have been thinkiing about getting some because, as you know, I am also in the jewellery business, and going to work with dirt under my finger nails, is frowned upon. Just imagine my showing a nice 1.5 ct diamond ring, slipping it onto my “dirt under the finger nail” hand. Do you think it would show well? I DON’T THINK SO. LOL

Good idea, Michal. I hope there are many entries.

i could finally give my FIL a prostate examination while he sleeps, maybe cut the glove off leaving just a single fox glove finger behind

wouldnt that have him wondering when he woke up eh?

kidding

Jroot…...............I would never buy a diamond form a hand that was pearly clean. A worn hand, somewhat bathed and toned with earth is far more trustworthy then ” squeaky clean”..............?

What man wouldn’t want a pair of garden gloves? Actually, I love just about anything from Lee Valley. Could you arrange to have them open a store here in New Zealand? I’ve asked them before, face to face in the Ottawa head office store, but they wouldn’t commit to anything definite. I think I’m going to have fun with this. Thanks for the challenge!

I went to Michal’s blogs to find it.
How come when I tried to find it under the contests button it’s not there.

we have 16 entries! That’s our best participation in challenges, I think …

I’ve enjoyed reading all of the creative entries. Lots of chuckles.
