Well, not quite. The grass seed has germinated and tiny blades peep up from the soil. There are weeds but nothing like what you would get in your garden in today’s warm, wet weather. The park soil is probably not much of a treat for the new grass – except along the edges of the paths where a vigorous strip is emerging.

We are still not quite sure what happens next – it must be snagging and so on. It looks good now and will improve day by day.
