A Good Use for Mud

All of this rain has given us lots of mud here. It proves treacherous to move through, even with my boots on. I find if I stand in one place too long I am almost unable to move (probably a good reminder to not stand still!)

However, when doing chores yesterday I found that the mud does have some value – a replacement for the old plaster of Paris. The animals have left some endearing histories of their travels through it. I think it needs to be just the right thickness/density to achieve these looks.

Guineas…..

It really is a privilege to have the stewardship of these animals (and the chickens who did not get into mud today!)

  1. Good designs to add to your felting projects.

  2. [J] Your lighting for these pictures is just perfect. Sun not too high, not too low. It’s all too easy to just see mud as a dratted nuisance, an unsatisfactory day. We don’t get mud so much as squelch, but I’ll have to take the time to look and see if squelch has some redeeming qualities about it. It takes just the right level of illumination – thoughts not so high they’re no earthly use, nor so low they can’t see the beauty in ordinariness. ;~)
