First, Dante wants to show you what his Auntie Susan did to our pots on the front steps. All the plants had died and the pots were empty. As a surprise, Susan (who is our neighbour across the street) decorated them with beautiful branches -- mostly silver, with some red and brown accents. They make a wonderful statement for the upcoming holiday season! Thank you Auntie Susan!
"Here's what Mama's been talkin' about!"
"Even Furnando stopped by to get a look!"
This next series of pictures shows Dante, as a blurred background of orange, through the spirea bushes. The effect is totally accidental, as I was trying to focus on Dante instead, but the camera honed in on the branches. That's what you get for using an automatic focus!
Anyway, once I downloaded them, I really liked the outcome. They're purrfect for Thursday in the garden! You can see some of the leaves just turning yellow or red around the edges. All the other trees have long been bare, and the spireas are the last holdout.
Doesn't Dante make a gorgeous splash of colour, even though he's fuzzy?
And just so you don't leave today without seeing Dante's handsome face, here he is in focus!
