There's been quite a bit of rain lately, but Dante isn't going to let that stop him from his appointed rounds.
He's in the back yard today, showing you some of the latest.
Dante says "Mama putted some potted plants up heer on da deck".
"Dere are sum flowahs -- more of dose impatient ones an' sum PETunias -- and den dere's a big pot of gween fings, mama calls 'Herb'!"
"Itz funneh cuz 'Herb' smells bettah than da flowahs!"
"Den mama tole me dat 'Herb' ackshully has a bunch of diffurent names. Dere's Sage, Wosemary, Savoury, Owegano and lotsa Time. Dat last wun confuses me a liddle, cuz I didunt noes dat Time cud be put in a pot. A bottle maibe, but not a pot!"
"Now, I shows you da bushes called 'Summersweet'. Dere's two of dem. Dey gets flowahs latah on in da summah, but I hasn't tasted dem yet, so I doan know if dey's reely sweet or not."
"Wot I doo noes is dat dis gwass is mitey tasty!"
"Heer I is, back on da patio. My head gotted wet wen I was chompin' on da gwass."
"We got lotsa clovahs gwowin' in da gwass. Daddy jus' cut da lawn, but it gwowed rite back wif all dis rain."
"Now I is back on da steps of da deck. You kin see wun whole side of da yard frum heer. An' to mai rite is anudder pot of dose impatience dat mama likes so much."
"Now I mus' purrform mai ornamental dooties an' pose wif da flowahs."
"An' it nevah fails! I guess you noes by now wot I is seein'."
"Itz dat dastardly black demon ...
... cum ta dwive me NUTS!"
And with that, we bid Dante and his nutty buddy, adieu -- oh, and Herb, too!
