While chopping out much greenery
Has opened out the scenery,
A part there is that really chills the blood:
The ponds were full of gunge and slime,
So I have had a lovely time
All morning, wading round in stinking mud!

    Mud, mud, glorious mud! Reminds me of the Hippopotamus song, by Flanders and Swann. πŸ™‚

    You should have taken a bath in it! I’ve heard those are really good for your skin πŸ˜‰

    I thought mud wallowing was good (that’s why I prefer trail runs to road races, ha)! When you’re done cleaner the unwanted pants, do you stomp on them? I might have asked this before – exactly how big is your plot?

    Looks like you had lots of fun indeed. I am sure R and G would have enjoyed that too. Mud is good for the skin. LOL!

    Sounds like you could have done the gumboots dance!

    It will be interesting by the end of the year. We will heed that after pics then

    Glad the mud wasn’t swallowing as you were wallowing! πŸ˜€

    Gloop, gloop…
    Probably going to look a good deal better than mine when it’s done Col, so do carry on πŸ˜‰

      I don’t know about that!
      It upsets me to make it so bare, but the plants that were there shouldn’t have been there at all, like Wedelia. Pretty, but banned. Also, sword fern.
