We have had a lot of rain over the past few days. Also hail and sleet. Things are starting to look a little soggy!
In fact, the gateway into the yard got to the point where we just had to do something about it. We had some branches taken out in our woodland and the work has left us with a large pile of wood chippings. These are excellent for putting down on the mud!
My parents were very kind and put down a load of chippings on Friday. They are wonderful! I can now get into the yard without having a struggle and getting covered in mud. The dog likes it too – she might be a country dog but she hates mud and will do her best to get round it!
The rain hasn’t stopped us getting out and about though – although other people’s fields are looking even wetter than ours!
