The Latest Incarnation & Cast Of Characters In......TO WEED OR NOT TO WEED, THAT IS THE GARDEN

Fairy Stories from all
the Big Think Heads
like Joseph Campell are true
in the SOUL'S HIGH ADVENTURE
without any of that
WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE-ness
that currently is keeping all people in the
USA in their rightful places.
Those with  money  are definitely
proved to be  SOMEBODY's
 Far be it for me to say that that I've noticed that
Those Without Money Are Definitely being proved to be
NOBODY's and treated as such.
It seems to be some of the American People's
Job & Mission to prove who  the Nobody's are.
(and this goes for other countries too, not just individual people in the USA where the "who do you think you are"
comes into play.
It's that simple (minded) really as you continue
on your Joseph Campbell Hero's Journey

Blooms and Birds know it
Organic Happenings Know it

Coreopsis & Blue Pea Pods

The Perennial that I love, Coreopsis

Pea Pods...



Heirloom Romaine Lettuce & A monarch caterpillar munching away at the MILKWEED. Just doing my part to ensure the Monarch Butterfly continues to exist.

Grown from Heirloom seeds,
Romaine Lettuce in a window box

away at the MILKWEED.
Just doing my part to ensure
the Monarch Butterfly continues to exist.

BTW the heady, heavenly scent the
blossoms of the milkweed give off
are second to none in sweetness
of the smell that envelops
you as you walk past them.

The vermillion cardinal against the pink backdrop of the dogwood blossoms sets a stunning natural scene. outside my window at the birdfeeder

alongside geraniums and daisies




 A Punkin Plant from seeds I saved from last year's
punkins is growing nicely.
I'm hoping to have a nice crop of all sized punkins
this year


Garden Update: IT'S GARDEN SOMEWHERE & Other Garden Art

Yes Indeed, My Handmade Garden Art Sign

It's 5 o'clock Somewhere

A Swift I found by my window, dead,
that I coupled with my Garden Art Sign
that  reads:

THEY ALWAYS KNEW
THEY WERE BIRDS
OF A DIFFERENT FEATHER
AND THAT WAS OK.

The 13th annual World Naked Gardening Day Is Saturday, May 6th, 2017 !!!!...Be There Or Be Square..... Because In Winter, when the trees are bare, We mortals don our winter wear. In Spring, when trees begin to dress, We mortals then start wearing less, Until, for some, with Summer's heat The role reversal is complete.

~~~~~



“There’s not much body acceptance around, so the idea is to get people to try it. Maybe they will realise that the human body is OK, and also beautify the earth a little bit




Get ready for the Annual World Naked Gardening Day ...WNGD!...  People across the globe are encouraged, on the first Saturday of May, to tend their portion of the world's garden unclothed as nature intended.


Started by Mark Storey for the Body Freedom Collaborative movement, the event is dedicated to making “non-sexual social nudity” more acceptable.

Gardening has a timeless quality, and anyone can do it: young and old, singles or groups, the fit and infirm, urban and rural. 

An elderly lady in a Manhattan apartment can plant new annuals in her window box. Families can rake leaves in their back yard. Freehikers can pull invasive weeds along their favorite stretch of trail. 

More daring groups can make rapid clothes-free sorties into public parks to do community-friendly stealth cleanups.

Why garden naked? 

First of all, it's fun! Second only to swimming, gardening is at the top of the list of family-friendly activities people are most ready to consider doing nude. Moreover, our culture needs to move toward a healthy sense of both body acceptance and our relation to the natural environment.

Gardening naked is not only a simple joy, it reminds us--even if only for those few sunkissed minutes--that we can be honest with who we are as humans and as part of this planet.
