Muddy Puddles

We finally got enough rain to lay some water here the past few days (an inch and a bit falling here at home this week, and 65mm in one fall at the prickle farm!!) and the kids were excited. First water to play in for the summer. Yes, the WHOLE summer holidays not one muddy puddle.

  1. Hmmmm love it. And all the splashes right up the back. Mine aren't the only ones. Childhood fun. Sometimes I forget the important stuff.

    What a gorgeous country style gate. Your photos are great.

  2. Splendid fun! All kudos to you for allowing/encouraging their messy fun :). And yes, a photo which would grace the cover of Country Living ...

  3. Finally some rain for you. We're enjoying a little more at the moment, good for finishing BAS's, and watering the unmown lawn (why are mowers prone to break down in prime grass growing season)? Soft focus and clever angles, might be useful for self-portraits too!?!

  4. I am so glad you finally got some rain. Hopefully there is plenty more to come. Got to love the excitement a muddy puddle can bring.

  5. It's been pouring for nearly 24hrs straight down here now - your crew look like they are having a ball!

  6. The sun on the last photo is stunning!
