Well, it just happens to be "Earth Day" today, as well as a gardening day, so I thought we'd kill two birds with one stone by showing Dante on earth in the garden.

Dante, as you may know, has already done a good fertilizing job back there, but until the grass seed is sown, nothing is going to grow (and the weather's still not warm enough for that).

However, what Dante is able to do beautifully, is perform his secondary task as garden ornament. So, here he is, in the garden, helping the earth as only he can.

Dante says "You has to stand up for what you beleaf in!"

"And I beleafs in Mudder Nature".

"You see when it rains an' da erf gets wet, that's Mudder Nature making mud".

"An' den the sun comes out an' dries up all da rain".

"An' de itzy bitzy spider goes up da spout again!"

"Speaking of spiders -- I likes dem, too. In fact, I likes all kinds of bugs, but my fafurite is da grasshoppah".

"And dat's why I want to help da erf, so da grass will grow and da grasshoppahs will come for me to play wif".

"My udder fafurite fing is trees. You has to be good to da erf so da trees will grow big and strong."

"So I says a liddle prayer and sends dem all my good vibes".

"And finally, I gives da tree a pat on its branch (cuz it doesn't has a back), and tells it what a good job itz doing. You see, itz good fur da erf, an' da erf is good for it. Itz what dey calls a symbiotic relationship."

And with that, Dante has hit the nail on the head (or his nails on the tree).  We all need to have a symbiotic relationship with our Earth.  It's the only one we've got.  So let's preserve it and it will do the same for us.

Happy Earth Day, efurryone!

Dante, you are such a Green Guy! We love you help your beans fertilize and keep their garden going. Also, mom has been meaning to tell you...there's a band, Metallica, and every time she sees your picture, you look like the lead singer, James Hetfield! She just showed a girl she works with and she almost died! MOL!!!
