THURSDAY IN THE GARDEN WITH DANTE: PURRIWINKLE BLUES!


Today, Dante is in the back yard because Daddy did some planting AND he cut the grass!  There are also a couple of other new things such as ...

... the deck has been refinished in a lighter green colour, and Mommy planted her herbs.  You can see them in the background.  There's some basil, rosemary, and thyme.  There was some oregano, too, but it died.

"Aside frum dat, Daddy planted sum 'vinca' wich is also called 'PURRIWINKLE'!"


"Heer's wot it looks like.  Mommy wontid it fur grownd covah ...

... ta fill in da bare patches undaneaf da twees.  Grasses jus' woan grow dere becuz dere's no sun.  Da PURRiwinkle grows in full shade or full sun!  It shud sPURRead itself arownd cuz it likes ta do dat sort of fing."


"Heer's me posin' wif da PURRiwinkle ...

... it has such PURRty blue flowahs, doan yoo fink?"


"An' wile I'm heer, I fawt I'd do a liddle FURtilizin' by da fence.  Itza big job butt sumbutty's gotta doos it!"

And just when Dante thought he could take time to relax and have a bath ...

... he spied an introoder on the fence!  Who would dare to enter his Kingdom?

Why, it's none other than the Queen herself, the royal Domino!  At our place, the Queen trumps the King efurry time.

See you next time!

Hi Dante we have enjoyed our journey round your garden today - we just wondered if your fertilizing of the garden was for flowers or for the vegetables?
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
