The Joys of Gardening Bare

Bare Platypus lives South of the Mason-Dixon line.  With this geography, plus an unseasonably warm winter, there have been several days warm enough to go outside without clothing and remain quite comfortable.  There's a patch in the backyard which, after several years of taking enhanced non-offense measures, is sufficiently secluded to allow total nakedness.  Enjoying such nakedness in FEBRUARY can only be described as sheer joy.

So while it may be premature to celebrate World Naked Gardening Day, it is certainly fitting to celebrate simply gardening bare.  If it's too cold where you are to enjoy this simple pleasure at this time of year, no problem.  Water your houseplants nude.  Start some seedlings in your kitchen window and experience the luxury of doing that nude.  You owe it to yourself.  And you'll score one for God's green earth while you're at it.

Enjoy!
