"Celebrate! Celebrate! Dance to a new day!"


I've been away but I am back just in time for..... World Naked Gardening Day (WNGD)!

So what should you do? First of all, on May 4, 2013 find an opportunity to get naked and do some gardening. Do so alone, with friends, with family, with your gardening club, or with any other group collected for that purpose. Do it inside your house, in your back yard, on a hiking trail, at a city park, or on the streets. Stay private or go public. Make it a quiet time or make it a public splash. Just get naked and make your part of the botanical world a healthier and more attractive place.
Secondly, tell someone about your experience. No one owns this event, so it does not really matter whom you tell, but tell someone . Tell your friends about your day of naked gardening; write down what you thought of it and email it to your local newspaper; post your thoughts and images onto an Internet site; submit stories and photos to your club newsletter.
This was celebrated last year at various places in Seattle but, when I tried it, I am sorry to say that elders screamed and toddlers burst into tears before I could begin to tiptoe through the tulips. SWAT was called.

It's 46-damn-degrees and raining like hell here in south Alabama, in May yet, and I'll be dammed if I'm going to celebrate World Naked Gardening Day. Anyway, too worried about global warming to celebrate much of anything.

This gives a whole new meaning to planting by the moon signs.

...oh, and "Don't bend over in the garden, Granny, 'cause them taters got eyes!"

My neighbors took up a collection to make sure I stayed fully dressed.
