One just would like to say this

It always feels slightly improper going into the front garden in a dressing gown with a toothbrush in one's mouth and toothpaste in one's hand. One is never quite certain why this should be, but it just strikes one as an activity that should be confined to the house, if not the bathroom itself. Strangely enough it always strikes one in this way after one has wandered absent-mindedly into the front garden in a dressing gown with a toothbrush in one's mouth and toothpaste in one's hand, which just goes to show, one never can know, can one? No, one can't. However, next time, one proposes a simple solution to this dilemma: instead of wandering into the front garden in a dressing gown with a toothbrush in one's mouth and toothpaste in one's hand, one will not bother putting the dressing gown on. The rose bush, one feels, is certainly of sufficient height now to protect one's modesty if and when the need should arise.

'Man's life is but vain;
For 'tis subject to pain,
And sorrow, and short as a bubble;
'Tis a hodge podge of business
And money, and care,
And care, and money and trouble.
But we'll take no care
When the weather proves fair
Nor will we vex now,though it rain;
We'll banish all sorrow
And sing till tomorrow,
And wear our dressing gown
and clean our teeth very thorough
even if neighbours wear a frown
my toothpaste in hand
dressing gown fallen down
I shall stare them out till 'morrow
every man owns his land
each to his castle bold
naked and proud and uncallow
brushing teeth naked clad in the wind
I shall never be a'feared'

I just tried to sing that with a toothbrush in my mouth and almost choked....

One might suggest that one does not stray to close to the rose bush sans dressing gown.
