Sometimes gardens aren't that pretty. Like when you let nature (and Dante) just run amuck. This is precisely what has happened in our back yard. Dante happens to like the jungle-like appearance, though Mommy feels quite differently. But Dante's ultimate loyalty is to Mommy, and he likes to make her happy.
Here are the infamous Himalayan orchids. Mommy hates these things because they proliferate like crazy. Mommy regrets the day she planted the seeds her sister Nancy sent her. What an evil sister!
They look so innocent don't they? You'd never think they were plotting to take over, not just your back yard -- but the world!
I have given Dante the assignment of obliterating these floral pests without the use of pesticide.
"I alreddy peed on da soil an' now i duz a liddle dance", says Dante.
"I sPURReads it arownd reel gud so it will kill dese darn orkids."
"O! Dere is mai next targit -- a big nasty weed!"
"Wunce i has distwibutid mai cawstick yoorines, i twamples da pesky fings fur gud meashur! Is almos' as much fun as a twampoleen. O boi!"
"All dun fur now! We jus' hasta wates fur mai PURRsonal poison ta takes effeckt."
And with that, Dante stands tall and proud, knowing that he has done Mommy's bidding, even though it wasn't his PURRsonal preFURence.
Dante says: "Himalayin' Orkids -- Gud Widdance!"
