The house across the street is nearly done. They laid a sod lawn today and Nicholas was amazed,
"Mama," he said pointing to the instant green, "I don't understand how this grass suddenly growed."
"They laid it down in squares," Zachary explained, "like outdoor carpet."
Confession: After spreading our truckloads of topsoil this summer, we are now seeding and I discovered a new vice--I have sod envy.
