New Growth

This spring we were trying to figure out why we had this circle in the front yard where grass wouldn't grow. I put down some mulch there to see if we could get grass to grow. It's growing, but we remembered what was there last year that killed the grass; we have a fairy ring (you can't see it too well in the picture, but there are mushrooms growing!).
