What smells might it have? What textures? What might a blade of grass taste like? What might you find in a lawn? What might you find on a lawn? What is the biggest lawn that comes to mind? What was the funkiest lawn that comes to mind? What was the lawn you walked by or on most recently? What is your idea of a truly beautiful lawn? Choose one of the lawns.
