The green, green grass of home

Goodness gracious, we've got grass!
It's been a long time coming, but the grass sown and planted on Uncle Frankie's Happy House Field of Dreams is finally coming good.
When Frankie Asher, who won everyone's hearts in the three months he spent volunteering with our family, left for home in September you could barely see a hint of green on the the wonderful football/sports field he so generously funded and worked so hard to clear, level and plant.
Growing grass is never going to be easy where there is so much sun and not much rain, but it is really doing well.
How rewarding it is for Frankie and for all the kids and staff who helped him, to see it looking so good.. 
And for once Mama is quite happy to let the grass grow under our feet!
