What a muddy mess I have made of the backyard

With the amount of rain we have been having this spring, we’ve had constant grass growth without hardly a day of dry weather in order to mow. I finally had to cut the soggy backyard for fear of never being able to cut it without a brush hog. After making the decision to cut it, I’m now wondering if it was a mistake?

Thankfully though here in southwest Ohio we’ve been spared the devastating tornadoes that hit states to the south this April, and despite the rains we haven’t had the flooding those receiving our water downstream are experiencing. My heart and prayers go out to all who have experience loss of life and property this spring.
