 Since our last post, it has snowed quite a bit.  Although there's no work that needs to be done in the garden, Dante is going to show you what it looks like, and how he occupies himself outside during the winter.

As long as the temPURRatures aren't below freezing, Dante is happy to explore outdoors.

Here he is beside the large deciduous tree in the front yard.
"I moss sai", says Dante, "dat it's ackshully not so bad out heer wen yoo gets yoosed to it." 

In fact, Dante likes to make depawsits in the snowbanks.

"Dere's no buziness like snow buziness", he says.

And here is Dante inspecting the tree in the back yard to see how it's standing up to the weather.

"Trees is bilt fur snow an' cold -- just like me!"

And a winter tour of the garden wouldn't be complete without making a snow angel, so here's one just for you.  "Duzn't I luk anjelick?", asks Dante?

Dante is a garden ornament for all seasons, showing you how gardens can be beautiful even covered in the white stuff.

We love the photos of Dante out in the snow!

We've been lucky to have missed most of the snow that has fallen in other areas, but we're quite sure that luck won't hold for much longer. :-P

You look more handsome than ever posing in that snow - keep warm.

Dante, yes you DO look angelic and you are still one of the handsomest boys my Tortie eyes have ever seen.

Dante in the snow is the epitome of gorgeousness. There is never any snow here, just thunder and rain.
