While these pictures of grass may not seem like something about which to be excited, they make me very happy. We had a massive dirt pile in our backyard which our landlord finally got rid of a few months ago, and he was supposed to plant grass, but he never did. My dad came over and planted grass for us, but it was pretty cold so we figured it wouldn't come up. Thanks to these warm days we've been having, it looks like we'll be able to use our backyard next spring and summer! The sun beats down on the front of the house all day long, making it unbearably hot, but the backyard stays nice and cool.

OK, I totally understand this. We had to have a new well drilled last year, and they left tons of hard red clay all over the yard when they were done drilling. And then it baked in the sun and got hard as pottery.

I didn't think anything would grow on it. So, after a few days of heavy rain we spent days trying to rake it (very hard work that seemed impossible and pointless, nothing was going to grow there!) Then threw tons of grass seed and hoped for the best.

Today: it's all green. You can't even see where the red clay was. And that makes me happy every time I look at that part of the yard.
