PROJECT: bring in the spring

I dug up a corner of the lawn to make a new flower bed. I put the unwanted sod on the growing brush pile behind the lilac bush. Then it occurred to me that I might as well save at least a piece of it. I cut a square and put it in a pot, watered it, combed out the dry leaves, and gave it a little hair cut. It was still dormant and brown from winter, but is now turning green and growing fast. I am hoping it will thrive at least until it is green outside. If it works, I might make this a spring tradition, tear up a bit more of the high-maintenance lawn and bring a bit of it inside. It would make a great Easter basket
