Then after the thaw comes ........MUD
A lady from Connecticut U.S.A. once told me that in the New England area of America they have five seasons. Spring, summer, autumn, winter and the 'mud season'.
I am not sure if she likes mud but Billy and I enjoy going out to run/play in it. What is not to like? It is an excuse to put fell running shoes on, even for our from the door runs. Mud is softer to run on, it doesn't rattle my knackered joints as much and Billy gets to play the Hippo game.
