I’d really love to be able to write a post for you that details a foreign trip we’ve been on, a trip to our naturist club near Billericay or even a visit to a garden or some kind of naturist event.
Unfortunately the Covid pandemic has put paid to the first two and as for the others, work requires me to work six days every week, during May and June, so until it is over there’s little time for anything else but gardening.
I even fit in the collecting of garden supplies during the working days, so I can garden on the one day I do have off, hopefully enjoying it clothes free.
So for the moment it’ll just have to be my gardening exploits, illustrated with photos all taken by myself, showcasing naturism,at its most serene and showing the stunning (hopefully) shots of flowering plant blooms as summer moves on.
Today is June 7th and finally as with last Tuesday (my last day off) the sun shone brightly, with hardly a cloud in the sky. Comfortably there was a gentle breeze, which made sure I didn’t get too hot as I cracked on with the jobs I had to do today.
As with last Tuesday there was no need to dress at all, except with the usual sunblock, although it wasn’t such an early start so I had a lie in, before I headed out just before 9am.
First job was to put up a second garden clock (another work freebie), this time on the potting shed before going to the growing zone (the raised bed and greenhouse area on the other side) to replace the polythene protecting the onions, with netting, which I bought on amazon last week.
This took around an hour as I had to remove all the weeds, as well as remove several squatting slugs and snails. Once that was complete I harvested some onions, which are all but ready.
I did some watering next, using the new supply I’d fixed up on the right hand side of the garden. It worked well although it will need adjusting a little at a later date.
This allows me the chance to use my freebie Hozelock superhoze without having to bring out the other bigger heavier hose carts to often.
After a coffee and lunch break, it was time to plant up 3 hanging baskets (with trailing lobelia, begonias, geraniums and petunias), these being the bedding plants I’d bought at Aldi at the weekend,as well as recharged two other planters, which I have now moved out to the front of the house .
In the mid afternoon I mowed the lawn, tidied the weed bed (wildlife area). I also lifted some tulip bulbs, put in tomato bamboo supports as well as watering everywhere once again and thankfully too I noticed there’s more new blooms appearing every day ❤️
