So i decided to cut the grass...

And it looks much better... well from where i am sat right now anyway....
Apologies for the awful picture, I couldn't be bothered to move after a bust morning!
 I have finally taken down the maze of string and old CD's which was protecting the seed. If you get up close though it is still pretty bare in terms of actual grass coverage.
Even here it doesn't look too bad...

But then you see this.

And this.
But it's fine. It's a working progress and as my step dad said (who has been a gardener all his life but i still decided to ignore him), I am hoping for a miracle if I want a proper lawn growing under such a big tree (a damson tree!!). It has done much better than I expected already and actually the rest of the lawn which has been there forever is still pretty holey. When the heat of this indian summer dies down later i think giving it some water wouldn't hurt!
I just thought i would add a picture of our lovely cottage, sweet isn't it!

Oh and just for laughs, Scott trying to work out which way to undo a bolt... he still hasn't worked it out!
