PRUNING the bushes, mowing the lawn and weeding the flower beds don't sound like particularly racy activities - but this weekend gardening is set to get a lot saucier. Gardeners across the country will be picking up their tools - and dropping all their clothes - for the now-iconic World Naked Gardening Day. Fans of the social media movement have celebrated the annual day on the first Saturday of May for the last 14 years, stripping off and posting pictures online celebrating the joys of working as naked as Mother Nature intended. It's a day that has won celebrity backing.

It's World Naked Gardening Day in the northern hemisphere. So, in the spirit of comfort and safetythe experts at NZ Gardener magazine who will not, they want you to know, be celebrating the day have come up with a few gardening tasks that may help you stay warm and safe while naked in your garden. Grab a rake and sweep. It's the perfect season for it too.

I feel exposed in a sleeveless shirt. So to me, the idea of nude gardening seems a little, well, out there. When I called the association seeking someone to talk about its annual World Naked Gardening Day, it put me in contact with the amiable and articulate Brown. It was May 14, and that just seemed a little early for going au naturel in northeast Ohio.
Caroline Donald collates photographs of 40 gardens in her new book subtitled Private Paradises Shared. It includes an 80 ft model elephant from the film adaptations of Les Miserables. Despite this lavish expenditure, some of the photographs in the book are a let-down, making many of the gardens look rather drab.
