A Fact of Spring
Spring mud is simply an annual fact of homesteading on this mountain in Montana. As the towering snow drifts melt and the resulting steady trickle of water flows across the hilly land and down our winding driveway, we endure a season of mud.
It's temporary, of course, and when all this snow finally melts and the sun comes out and the days warm up consistently, the muddy land will transform into a display of green grass and acres of abundant wildflowers.
It will be worth waiting for, those less messy and much prettier parts of spring that are sure to come. Until then, I am trying to keep as much of this mud as possible out of the house!
