Well, it's Thursday and Dante's in the front yard ready to report.

"Do yoo remembah last week wen I said our nayburrs was digging up dere gardin?  Well, heer's wot it looks like now!"

"Dey digged up dere driveway, too, and dey's redoin' da whole fing!"

"An' back heer at home, mama's startin' ta plant her pots.  See da pritty purpull flowahs?"

"Mama got dis big pot o' flowahs fur Mudder's Day frum mai brotherbean, Ryan.  He hung it up fur her cuz she's too short to reech."

"Dis is our enclosed gardin.  I calls it "Bush Gardin" cuz it has 3 bushes -- a spyrea (dat is good fur spying fru), an' 2 weigelas -- wun dat gets pink flowahs an' de udder wun gets red flowahs."

"Bush Gardin is a wunnerful B&B ware you kin go fur sum R&R.  As yoo kin see, it has a big comfy bed dat I is lyin' on."

"Yoo kin be in da sun an' da shade at da same time!"

"It's also a great spot fur bathin'!" 

"Dat's why we calls it a B&B -- fur Bed an' Bath."

"Bush Gardins is also a verreh secure locashun.  Yoo kin spy fru da spyreas to detect pawsible frets -- an' heer cums wun now!"

"Halt tresPUSSer!  Dis is PURRivate proPURRty!"

Dante gives chase, but is limited by the length of his leash.

Nonetheless, he has been effective in vanquishing the introoder.  Just another job that feline gardeners must PURRform to keep their gardens free of pests.

Dante returns to his station in Bush Garden -- ever on alert.  "Dere's only wun fing dat dis B&B duzn't has", says Dante.

"Dey doan serve brekfist!  Dey expects yoo to catch it yoorself!"

Well at least they put out a buffet for the breakfast birdie to fatten him up.  Now it's up to Dante to do the rest.  See you next week in the garden.

Hi Dante! Wow what a great place you have there at Bush Garden - it looks like a wonderful place to hang out and take a rest! And you did a great job getting rid of the introoder - he won't be back any time soon we bet!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We hope your neighbour soon makes his garden look good enough for your discerning eyes Dante. We don't want him distracting all the neighbourhood cats from coming to visit you on your evening soirees.
Well done seeing that trespasser off - you'd better get your mom to give you an extra long lead in case they are a few inches out of reach.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
