Mud, muck and spring greens


Some of the hawthorn in the hedgerows is bursting out in green leaves already... rather too early. I wonder what effect it will have for the rest of the year? Spring will either be a very long season or will be over in a flash and all too soon, before I have really been able to appreciate it!

Despite the signs of spring, underfoot the paths are just claggy mud. The farmer was hard at work muck-spreading - a messy and very 'fragrant' task. But even the tractor was finding the mud a bit difficult to navigate.

  1. That sounds early. But it is always nice to see something green again.

  5. The first signs of spring are always so welcome. Wish I could see green instead of dirty, gray snow!

  6. Look at all those muddy tracks. Maybe the farmer started too soon.

  7. That's much what it looks like here -- greening up and muddy.
