It’s the 13th annual World Naked Gardening Day, and it helps if you’re not freezing. The predicted high temperature in Calgary is 65°F, which is slightly above normal and plenty warm enough for some brave souls:
“I love it. I think it’s a fun idea, especially after a long winter, to get out there and get some vitamin D,” Jenny Hayles, who will be gardening in the buff with her husband Colin, told the Calgary Eyeopener.
“It’s body positive, too. You’re not looking in the mirror, you have a task at hand, it makes it fun.”
And one need not be a purist about wardrobe requirements:
“I don’t think anybody is going to hold it against you if you have to put on a hat or some gloves,” said Colin.
“You’re allowed some protective gear. On a more serious note, the most important thing is the sunscreen.”
I must point out that I’ve been warning you about potential problems ever since Year One.
