So, the title is a little racy, a little out-there, but it describes to a tee what front-yard and community gardeners do. They put it there, they expose themselves in their gardening exploits. They don’t keep it in the backyard — they bring it out front, full-front, where it can change lives and make a difference.
This past week I had the pleasure of speaking at the Blooming St. Paul awards. Officially speaking, the purpose of the awards is to promote and recognize beautification efforts by Saint Paul’s citizens through gardens and art in the public realm. Good on them! In my world, it was like speaking at the Oscars.
“All gardeners live in beautiful places because they make them so.” -Joseph Joubert, 18th century French writer.
Below are some of the photos from my presentation, Full-frontal Gardening, to help you get ready to bare it all this spring.
