I used to wear gardening gloves all the time when working in my gardens.  I used to hate having dirt embedded in my finger prints & stuck under my nails. 

Over the past few summers, I stopped wear gloves because I wanted to be closer to the earth, I wanted to understand it, feel it anoint it with my green thumb.  The only time not wearing gloves has a draw back is when I get splinters from mulch.  Ouch, I hate splinters!

I have seen similar images to this one on some of my favorite stock sites & just love the concept.

Today, I decided to take the theme into my own hands.  Well at least Sade’s hands. I am finding that my kids come in handy (no pun intended) when it comes to setting up certain shots that I want to create as well as assisting me when necessary.
