World Naked Gardening Day is an annual international event.  Generally celebrated on the first Saturday of May by gardeners and non-gardeners alike, so basically today.  However, I’m not so sure I fancy ever going without clothes on in this garden, for we have stinging nettles out there in places (no not a weed, it’s a good plant) and in full summer sometimes the wasps just seem a little angry!  I’m not a prude, I mean I do recall sunbathing naked in the gardens I’ve had the pleasure of living with.  For instance, when we lived nearly two miles from our nearest neighbour on an island and I wanted to look a little less A4 sheet of writing paper (off white with lines).  Only I do also recall, that on one hot summer’s day some non-English speaking tourists in full camping gear came over the hill asking for water.  Talk of run indoors like a scared rabbit!  The first and last time I actually shut the croft door and actually locked it.  I’ve never sunbathed naked since, oh wait there was that time I sun bathed upon the… and then…  oh and that story where I nearly… LOL, well yes, let’s move swiftly on.

Thing is, have you a suitable private garden that isn’t overlooked?  Are you prepared to go naked in the garden if the weather turns agreeable?  Would the neighbours (if they did spy on you and your uniqueness) be happy with the view or run for cover and call for armed backup? LOL, we’re all different and only photoshop can make us all lookalike.  Well anyways, I find wearing suitable clothing for the job in hand so much more liberating, but each to their own.  I can see that if it’s really sunny and the pond needs weeding, I suppose you could leave your hat on.
