these little daffodils are always first out,
and these are my new boots, Salomon Adventure Trekkers. I've had them on several times, mud water, washed off with the hose, been riding in them and dug the garden.

they haven't leaked and were purchased from the internet. I have been refunded for the ones I bought from a well known outdoor retailer, and thanks to Trevor at their head office for sorting this out.

Yay for daffodills, but already?! They are such good cheer.

And a big yay for good boots! Glad you got it sorted out.

NG, think a leather pair may be more supportive! havea good trek!
Wildside, these little daffs always give an early pleasant surprise. and it was a relief to get the boots sorted.
Grannyfiddler, it was good to find somebody who would deal with it and not fob off my complaint, garden under rain today.
Lowa, I can't stand having wet feet, all I need is waterproof!!

I love the shape of those daffs and looks like you have hellebores too. Lucky duck!!
Your new boots look great and I see they're well worn-in already :)
That's great that the store came through with a refund. Too bad you had to go through the unpleasantness first though. Very bad for business!!
