Rain .. rain .. gives us mud mm.mmm mud
Friday morning we had the BEST of times as there were puddles for miles and everything was dew kissed and damp, soft and green.
The children had an absolute ball. By 10am, Ari was kneed deep in mud, soaking wet from the waist down and ecstatically happy. Lucky we had those extra clothes in the barn. Every person we encountered lit up with a smile as they were touched by the joy, excitement and freedom the children were having.
It sort of set the tone for the morning as they were like one tribe in all we did.
A wander through the garden after all the run and fun in the water and mud was glorious. Everyone slowed down enough for us to notice every little thing that was there to see. The sun glinted andt he rain drops on nasturium leaves were glinting like diamonds. One tip of the finger and all those drops rolled into one, like liquid silver.
The bulbs have started blooming and their beauty was held in great reverance too.
It was Olivia's first friday with us ... and she soon decided that Yoshi seemed to know what he was doing. They were pleased as could be with themselves for finding their way up into the Peppercorn tree and soon after ... guess what we found? Yes, more mud!!
Such a good day for all ...
