From RV’s to Birthdays to World Naked Gardening Day

A couple of days ago I blogged about our new RV.  Yesterday my post was about Lili’s birthday.  Today, will be a different topic altogether.

My blog is becoming quite diverse I suppose.  Maybe there is interest in stopping by for a visit just to see what in the world I might be writing about next.  Or not.

I really never intended to write about anything and everything, but there is a lot happening in our life and in this world.  When there is good material, I should write about it.

For example, gardening.

This year I planted 4 blueberry and 6 red raspberry bushes.  I also planted 2 sweet plum trees.  Then those pesky rabbits got in the garden.  I didn’t realize it until they hadn’t eaten the majority of leaves off everything.  Of course it doesn’t take long for 4 rabbits to devour some young fruit bushes.

Lesson learned!!!!  Now each fruit plant has a cage around it, but the rabbits continue to stick around just waiting for the next tasty meal and I am keeping a watchful eye on the bushes in hopes that they will begin growing new leaves.

Maybe they would stay away if I participated in World Naked Gardening Day 🙂

Yes folks, the 1st Saturday in May is in fact World Naked Gardening Day!!!  (Warning!!!!!  If you click on the World Naked Gardening Day link, you will see naked gardeners.)

Wear your birthday suit and spend time in your garden.  Apparently, next to swimming, it’s the most family friendly activity people are willing to try.

I’m not one of those people willing to try naked gardening.  Among other reasons, I fear the following scenario . . . .

I’m being ushered out of my garden in handcuffs telling the officer – “But officer, it is World Naked Gardening Day.  It’s not just a national holiday, but a WORLD holiday so you can’t arrest me.  Plus, shouldn’t you be out of uniform and in your garden instead of taking me out of my garden?”

For some reason, I just don’t think the local police would accept World Naked Gardening Day as an excuse for running around my back yard naked.   However, if gardening in the buff would keep those darned rabbits out of my garden, I would consider putting a naked scarecrow out there instead.

If you participate in World Naked Gardening Day, please feel free to leave a comment.  No pictures necessary though.
