THURSDAY IN THE GARDEN WITH DANTE: IT'S ALL IN THE PURRSPECTIVE!

Dante wants to show you some purrspectives of his garden that you may not have seen yet.

This picture is taken streetside and shows you the garden through the veil of the Manitoba maple tree.



 This is the purrspective from the opposite side of the garden, and what do you know?  There's Dante lying down under the wrought iron bench.

 He is 'lion' down in a seating area.  Well he never has been a conformist -- why start now?

 So now, instead of just dreaming about it, Dante immerses himself in yet another purrspective -- from within the garden.

"My purrspective is that this is heaven!!!" says he.

THURSDAY IN THE GARDEN WITH DANTE: ON THE OTHER SIDE

Dante is sitting on the front porch chair waiting to take you on a tour of the other side of the garden.

 "Yes", says Dante.  "Yoo kin see dat da gardin cums around by da side of da house, too.  Let me take yoo fur a closah look."


 "Dere is a sittin' area rite beside da frunt steps wif a cast iron an' wood bench an' little tables wif cat ornimints.  Mama is parshul ta buddhas."


 "On de uddah side of da post is a trellus wif sum 'climb-at-us-es'."



 "It has several diffurent colours of flowahs climbin' at us.  Sum is pink, sum is white and sum is purrple."


 "On de uddah side of da bench area is anuddah bench an' a pot of plantid begonias ."


 "An' behine dat bench are my belovid hydrangahs.  Let me take yoo back up to da frunt porch."


"On de uddah side of the frunt porch is a gorjuss hangin' plant.  Da red an' wite flowahs is fewshas but even Mama duzn't know da name of da pure red wuns -- but dey shur is speCATular!"


"Dis is Dante signin' off so until next time, bye bye!"

DANTE: SLEEPY BOY!

It always amazes me how cats like to pick some of the most uncomfortable places to take a nap.

 Here is Dante lying on the mulch in the garden.


The bits of bark would drive me barking mad, but Dante seems oblivious.
PURRhaps in his dreams he's sleeping on pillows.

DANTE'S IN-TIMATE MOMENTS

As you know by now, Dante has become very in-timate with the weigela bushes and is enchanted with the scent of their blooms.

And if a picture is worth a thousand words, here's how I know he's really 'in' with them.

The intoxiCATing aroma relaxes him.


 And Dante loves them best when he and they are at their 'peek'!


And now is 'peek' season for sure.



"Flowahs is da "IN" fing yoo know!" 



After all 'flower power' is the power of love and that never goes out of style.


P.S.  Thanks again to Auntie Susan for the latest pix.
