We have grass!
It's beginning to grow. I'm watering it twice a day and there's a fair amount of dew over night. It's been really hard keeping the dogs off it and there is a wee bit that they always run on that I'll put more seed onto and fill in the bald bits, but very soon it'll look more green than brown.
In hind sight ( wonderful thing!) I should have spread more seed on all the bare patches that have died in the drought. I'll do that when I fill in the gaps.
