Extreme Gardening

We've had a lot of rain lately, like everywhere else I guess. I did not realise how wet my garden was until I decided to try to pull a weed that was a bit too far for my reach and set foot in the garden, and sunk into 7 inches of black mud! I had to ask for help as I was stuck there, sinking, trying to keep some kind of balance, with my other foot safely in the grass about four feet away. I just could not lift my foot. It had been swallowed by a sinking mud pit. I guess we were quite a sight as he tried to pull me out. Eventually, we heard a big smack and my foot came out, without my sandal. My knight in shining armour was so nice, he stuck his arm in the slimy pit to recover my sandal.Too bad, no camera or video, no proof! I guess the part he liked the most was when he hosed me down. I used to pay a lot of money for mud baths at the spa, now I just have to go roll in my garden!
