I can hear the grass grow

This is my second week back in Strasbourg from the UK where I worked for six weeks and spent some days with my parents before that.  Before leaving I worked an intensive couple of weeks at the same place I have been working since my return.  The stop before mine on the tram is Lycée Couffignal which is named after the school of the same name the stop is next to.  Work has been taking place at the school to provide a new gate and entrance and a running track, basketball court and football pitch have all been developed in a large area in front of the school buildings.  Before leaving the entrance seemed to be complete and tarmac laid for the basketball court and the running track.  Not much was happening with the football pitch apart from the goals.  Imagine my surprise the first morning when there was so much grass it was difficult to see the far goalposts:

The large number of sunny days in July and the downpours in August have really sped the growth of the grass, helped by the absence on holiday of the men who would cut the grass no doubt.  The title for this post is from a song again, this time the Move:
