Garden (part II)

Grass grew. It wasn't grass we wanted and it wasn't where we wanted it, but it grew anyway. This had been a paddock, after all.

How much of the view would be sacrificed to protect the house from wind? How much lawn? Eucalypts in the yard? Natives or exotics or a combination of both? And while I would walk the yard and imagine and envisage the future garden, the old tufts of paddock grass continued to grow...
