The Swamp

Photo by Tekniska museetI am beginning to understand how people can walk into quicksand unaware.

Our backyard looks solid and dry. But in reality, the last weeks of rain have left a thin veneer of grass over a 5 inch layer of mud.

My hubby, trying to be a good neighbor, got the truck stuck in the backyard trying to get the trailer out. The neighbor he was trying to help then got two of his cars stuck in his backyard trying to use a rented trailer.

When I walk to put the garbage out the mud is up to my ankles.

I love my wellies. They are mud-proof, and kind of make squishing through it fun.

But we’re going to have a heck of a leveling and re-seeding job come spring.
