I'm proud of you and a bit envious because today is a bad mosquito day, between recent rain, overcast and being behind on mowing. My garden time has been spent with every bit of me covered and feeling grateful for my sun hat and bug netting hood.
Thanks for celebrating on my behalf and I'm with you in spirit.
I really want to know what idiot picked May 1st for this day,
Yes me too Skandi! It was a lovely day for gardening, and I did take my jumper off, but a cold north wind meant it was still a two T-shirts and long trousers day despite the sunshine. Maybe more skin at the end of May, but no way the beginning! "Ne'er cast a clout" (don't take off your coat) "till May be out", and neither the month is over nor the flower (hawthorne) is in bloom, so my clothes will stay firmly on just now thanks!
It was somewhere between 78°F & 80°F, when I was out there. We're not where neighbors are going to see, unless they actually come down the drive - and I had a pullover house-dress handy, just in case. I got a bit more sun on my face than I meant to, because I forgot my (homemade) sunscreen, and the ticks are out, and on the prowl, so I didn't stay nekkid, the whole time - just in this area, where we are diligent about the d.e., and herbal/ essential oil battle against them.

Can't do July 1st, what about people on the other side of the globe?
87% of the worlds population live in the northern hemisphere, and most of those in the southern half of the world live close enough to the equator that whichever month one picks it would be fine, Only really the very tip of south america and NZ that might get a bit cold on the 1st July.
