Boy it rained a lot today. It has finally filled up our new duck pond that my husband dug at great expense last spring.
Enzo, our black lab is cold and wet and absolutely certain that I am going to let him up onto our nice dry bed. So it is real gumboot weather! Lots of wellies going out to glamorous ladies all over Australia and New Zealand. Meanwhile my tummy is getting bigger, so I can't really go out and enjoy my wellies to their full advantage because I am so sleepy. Due in 2 weeks!
Little George is walking like he's done it for years and loving his pair of Barbour childrens gumboots (they were a sample but yes, we will have them available soon) He can't understand why Mummy waddles along like a slow old duck.
I hope you are all getting good use out of your wellies in this rainy weather. Please send any photo's you have of you looking glamorous in your Barbours to email@example.com and please like us on facebook.
We will give the best photo 50% off a pair of Barbour wellies. A great Christmas gift for someone you love.
So sad to see all the leaves falling off the trees after a lovely, if not quite as warm as we might hope, summer.
We are starting to get into Autumn. My husband is frantically planting trees already and has me out in my wellies collecting acorns with him. He loves growing oaks from seed. I have taken a lovely pair of green Barbour wellies for myself this autumn. They contrast well with all the brown leaves and look really stunning. We are getting a lot of demand for some of the more interesting colours like rustic and purple. It's great to see ladies expressing themselves through their winter footwear. No reason to let the colder months dampen down our enthusiasm for looking fashionable. We are looking forward to a busy winter. Lots of people seem to be buying wellies this year for concerts and festivals around Sydney and Melbourne. Hope you have your wardrobe ready for the winter.
Lots of leaves turning now in the garden. The pin oaks have an amazing red leaf. We are really getting into welly season too. So many enquires in the last few days. It is wonderful to hear from you all. We have had great reports of the Barbour wellies 'flying off the shelves' at Karen Walker stores. People are really starting to think about keeping warm and looking stylish this winter, which is great. I have to say that i feel very lucky to be involved with such a high quality brand. The performance of the boots for our customers, has been and continues to be exceptional. So roll on winter, can't wait to be out and about on the ski fields in lovely colourful wellies! and make sure you get in touch with us soon if you want new wellies to arrive before the cold weather.
