You pray for rain, you gotta deal with the mud too. That’s a part of it. ~ Denzel Washington
Three storms have deposited their rain filling our streams, retention ponds, and yards. As I walked across the yard, checking the chickens, plants, and such I was very thankful I had laid garden stones, paths through the muck.
I have been laying these paths and in some cases pivot points right before gates for a number of years. Hauling these stones is no easy work. But now, I have very little mud spots in my yard that had to be repaired every Spring.
I started by digging them in, but now-a-daze I just lay them in place and in less than a year they seat themselves at ground level rather nicely. I do have to trim the grass around them, but I actually enjoy doing that.
So the rains have come and will be in the Northwest for the next 7 months or so. But my shoes will be mostly mud free and my heart light. Enjoy.
