Listening to the grass grow

This morning was bright and sunny after two days of rain and fog (which I loved).  When I was growing up my dad would say that you could hear the grass growing on days like today.  He told us that the grass had just had a long drink and now that the sun was out it was reaching up toward the warmth, growing so fast you could hear it.  I have a very vivid memory of him slowly stretching his arms up into the air, making satisfied waking up noises, to demonstrate the grass's actions.

Can you hear it?

I love grass growing days.
