New pastures are flushed with growth.
The ground is still warm and dry enough for bare feet.
The cows are ebullient.
The brilliance of our wildlife is unmissable.
But, there’s this.
Winter is inevitable and so are rubber boots. In turn comes twisted, slithering southwards socks – enough to test the patience of a milk maid at the best of times, let alone when struggling through mud.
My trusty ones from last season have had it, so now I’m on the hunt for socks that will stay true all day long. There are plenty of great work socks for blokes but their wide toes mean uncomfortable bunches at the tips of my boots. Any recommendations?
