THURSDAY IN THE GARDEN WITH DANTE: THE STATE OF THE ESTATE


Once again, the main changes in the gardens, front and back, are to the trees.  So Dante is taking us on a tour to see the current state of his estate.


"Heer we are in da frunt yawd.  Yoo kin see dat dere's many moar leefs on da grownd dan before."

"An' dese leefs is orinj -- mai fafurite!"

"Dis twee is called a 'Manitoba Mapull' cuz I gess dat's ware it wuz borned."

"An' heer I is on da fwont steps, lookin' at da big spwuce twee fru da bushes."

"Just lookit all da lovely awetum foliages undah it.  Isn't awetum awesum?"

"Heer's me an' FURnando in da back yawd.  As usual, he's haffin' a snack."


"Yoo kin see since last time, dat da Sunset Mapull has turned all orinj -- jus' da way I likes it!"


"An' many moar of its leefs has fallen to da grownd."



Before Dante can finish narrating the tour of his estate, Dylan does a 'drive-by snooting'!
"How wude!", exclaims Dante.

"Todai da shadoes is makin' me luks like a wacoon!", says Dante.  "Isn't dat funneh?"

"Heer's a close-up view of da bootiful orinj mapull leefs."

"Dey makes da yawd so colour full!  But Daddy says he's gonna 'mulch' dem -- is dat anyfing like 'munch'?  Dat's an awful lotta leefs to eat at wun sitting!"

"Well, dat's the current state of mai estate.  FURnando an' I hopes dat yoo enjoyed yoor visit.
Until next time, so long mai furiends!"

The garden is copying the colour of your furs Dante - we could hardly see you!!

Dante, your garden tour is so professional and captivating what with its thorough inventory of all the leaves and colors. (MOMMY said that! Eww--I didn't!)

But *I* say you are so gorgeous that I wish I could come and visit and help you clean your glorious furs.

You asked which gentleman cat I was hoping would visit me when I was modeling my new hat--that would be Rupert and Spitty. Two beautiful man cats.

See you soon..

Hi Dante! We loved the tour today - that maple is so pretty! And we think it is great for your dad to mulch the leaves - it really is kinda like munching, but instead of your dad eating them they are food for the lawn! And we think you are cute with your raccoon stripes - but you are always cute, so that doesn't surprise us!

We have gorgeous trees here too, Dante. I really should go help Mom rake the leaves.
