World Naked Gardening Day! I had no idea this was a real thing!
Yup, the first Saturday of May is the official day for gardening/nudist enthusiasts the world over to get naked in the back yard.
I’m not a big fan of gardening. It’s essentially like housework, but outside, and in the mud.
But doing it naked, I can almost get behind. Most things are made funnier by doing them naked. Thing of somebody running for a bus… Now picture them doing it naked, bits flapping about everywhere… It’s definitely more entertaining.
Charlie Dimmock was halfway there back in the Ground Force days, with here nipples dipping into the soil very time she planted a sunflower.
Why garden naked? First of all, it’s fun! Second only to swimming, gardening is at the top of the list of family-friendly activities people are most ready to consider doing nude. Moreover, our culture needs to move toward a healthy sense of both body acceptance and our relation to the natural environment. Gardening naked is not only a simple joy, it reminds us – even if only for those few sunkissed minutes–that we can be honest with who we are as humans and as part of this planet.
It sounds very well meaning, if a little hippy-esque.
I can’t do it myself. Not just because the neighbours would be fuming, but I just don’t trust myself with shearers while my willy is out and about. Although being naked in the garden with a couple of hoes sounds like a good weekend…
