Mud, love it. The snow is finally starting to disappear and I can actually see our bulbs poking up out of the mud. Yahoo!

Before you all discuss the possibilities of having me put away, let me tell you, it has been one loooooooooooooooong winter here and everyone is happy to see mud!

The wind is warm here - a sure sign of spring, daffodills are everywhere, cherry blossom flying off the trees and it was an unseasonable 20 degrees centigrade last week. We are soon to return to the usual British spring weather of...mud. enjoy.
love and kisses, Jan

Mary, I understand about the loooong winter but ours started in January and we got 5 feet of snow in 6 weeks. It is melting and yesterdays rain really got the snow rotting. Today I had to help sort calves (one more go round before lunch) and I was up past my ankles in slop. I can hardly wait for the snow to be gone but it will be a while yet. The farmers want to be on the land in 30 days so we are hoping for nice weather.
If you ladies are going to lock up Mary for loving mud, you'd better take me in also.

OOOOUUUU you ladies should live down here. We are the Mud capital of the world most of the time. We get ours from rain. We live below sea level and we have to pump the water out when it rains. Sometimes it rains so hard the pumps can't keep up and then we get flooded streets, cars and houses. That's no fun. One time it was so bad that it took people who got it in their homes 9 to 10 months to get their carpet replaced because the stores couldn't get the carpet fast enough. I wouldn't mind mud if it didn't mean flood water here. I guess we all have some problem or another.

Mary how cold is it up where you are?

What I would give for the smell of mud. Right now you would have to wear a clothes pin on your nose, we have the beautiful aroma of thawing manure. :bg:

Yeah, that was quite something. A lot of roads are washed out. It rained heavy all last night and all day today. It is still raining now after supper, but not as hard.
