Go native, wear native
Most of us look like Pigpen of the Peanuts comic strip when we work in the garden. Sweaty, dirty, old clothes, old shoes.
But we don't always look that way.
I found these lovely garden T-shirts painted by Annapolis artist Luke Mays, and I bought three and sent them to my sisters with a note, "Happy Birthday. Whenever it is. You need this T-shirt now."
Luke paints jeans and jackets and posters. But I love the sunny optimism of his garden T-shirts.
He is now working on a series featuring native plants, like this one of the gallardia pulchella, and he will paint your favorite perennial to order!
If you'd like a T-shirt, too, you can reach Luke at Froggwood@gmail.com or 410-570-6505
