It’s World Naked Gardening Day today (5 May) and we’re showcasing the very best photos the internet has to offer.
Hundreds of people took to social media to show off their, er, enthusiasm for gardening in the best way possible.
The Royal Botanic Garden of Sydney even tweeted a hilarious video about participating in the day appropriately.
Curating manager of the Royal Botanic Garden Dale Dixon said in the video: ‘Guess what Saturday 5 May is this year? It is Naked Gardening Day!
‘You’ve gotta be really careful if you’re going to garden in the nude,’ he warns. ‘Firstly, if you are planning to do this, we advise please don’t turn up at the Royal Botanic Gardens naked because you will be sent home.
He then said: ‘If you are going to do this, we advise that you do it in your back yard. And ironically, please use all of the appropriate safety gear.’
And last but not least, Dixon warns: ‘Look after those dangly bits!’
While we don’t encourage any nudity in our garden – we repeat, do not come to #RBGSydney in the nude! – if you’re participating in World Naked Gardening Day in your own backyard today @dale_dixon has a few safety tips for you…#WNGD #WorldNakedGardeningDay pic.twitter.com/KEfUknEIm5

Last year, we featured an Instagram account called Boys with Plants – showing off shirtless boys and their favorite friends.
But without further ado, here are some of the best photos from people getting their green thumbs and bums out today.
