Not all garden pictures are glamorous!

22 comments


I am sure this will appeal to all gardening friends out there. The result of a good afternoon deadheading and weeding definitely not glamorous or pretty, but very satisfying! The orange box is on wheels and has made weeding in the middle of a border a lot easier – my aim is not good!

See all of you novice gardeners; to get strength, flexibility, weight loss, a great tan and that GLAMEROUS look, just fill up a couple of wheelbarrows up with weeds from your garden.

Done the weeding but hadn't noticed the weight loss.
Also a distinct lack of glamour, but the garden looks better...

I've got the tan.....and that's all! Where are we going wrong Stera ;)
That's a good day's work Wendy - I had a good day yesterday filling the council bin with moss and thatch from the front lawn! Only one blister on my hand, so all's good!

Its a great feeling when its done, I have my council bin full, its also been trampled on can't possiby get anymore in it, one of the old dustbins is also chocker, hidden next to my Tardis is a pile of rubbish and the wheelbarrow is full, that means that my council bin will be full to the brim yet again within an hour of them emptying it..
If the sun is out I always garden in my shorts and skimpy tops Steve, its always a mistake as my arms and legs are scratched to high heaven.......No glamour in that look...

Steve, you obviously know what you are talking about.....are you speaking from experience? I've got this image of you in your veg patch in hot pants ;)

He won't admit it though Lincs ;)

LOL, the mind boggles........

lol now I think that might be taking it a tad too far snoop, lol I would only frighten the neighbours (if I had any) lol :O) and the damned midges and mozzies are a bit of a pain, I dread to think what they might bite if there was more flesh around than normal in my garden. I won't mention the rude joke Charlie Williams uttered at one of his shows, needless to say the whole place was in absolute hysterics and he could not get going with the next few jokes for the hilarity in the audience. All to do with a nasty bee sting in the wrong place. lol I still can see that place in absolute mayhem after the punch line. :O) Happy naturism gardening for those who dare. lol

I always wondered if those naturists got sunburned there? If there are any GOY members out there that have fig trees, there is a potential market for your fig leaves waiting for you out there!

There are a couple of naturists that have appeared on the gardening shows, does anyone else remember them, can't think of their names but can picture them being interviewed in the garden, matey had a pouch around his waist, think it was to spare the viewers blushes or possibly the camera crew and presenter, it was not a pretty sight, both had long flowing hair and their skin looked like tough leather, a bit like the hippies of years ago but without the clothes, lol, they had a smashing garden though .......

I think we might lose more weight with more clothes on rather than fewer - the sight of me in hot pants would probably scare the birds...

29 Jun, 2014

 

The midges can get to me through 2 layers of clothes. If I wore nothing they would have a field day and I'd be up all night scratching....

...unless you were arrested first...

The thoughts of being arrested and thrown into a dark, dank cell without the Anthesan cream will ensure I dress appropriately in the garden...;o)

What would we do without that little tube...

13 Jul, 2014

 

Lol!!

14 Jul, 2014

 

We would be all scratching ,Stera..not very becoming of a lady :o) or a man either! and Lincs,I remember those two odd bods very well..whatever floats your boat,eh? Ah ,memories, Oliveoil..Charlie Williams was one of my faves too.I used to go to Batley Variety club where he was the resident Compere..still the best kind of humour,unlike some of the stuff churned out today...

How do you get from a barrow load of weeds to nudity and a itch to scratch ... Join GOY, hilarious!!!!!!

13 Sep, 2014

 

It's the websites that go from nudity and a itch to scratch to a wheelbarrow full of weeds that one should avoid.
