Dante promised last week that he was going to turn the front garden into a cat garden, as is his tradition every year.
Well, here you can see that he has fulfilled his promise!
The garden cats are blooming just like the flowers.
Dante, like the master gardener he is, is giving encouragement to his favourite tree.
"It's so nice ta see yoo in full leaf again, my furiend", says he.
And Dante gets right down to work, chatting up the wiegela bushes, too.
"Wanna come out and display, buddies?", he asks.
It's not good to force them -- they like to think it's their own idea.
Dante's gentle cajoling has obviously done the trick. They're busting out all over!
Dante likes to draw special attention to the birdbath which is one of the main features of the garden.
"It dubbles as a refreshmint stand", advises Dante.
"Dis garden is kinda edgy cuz it has lotsa edges".
"I likes ta make it even edgier by posin' in it."
"I am a cat aftah all!"
Yes, and an extremely ornamental one at that.
"I haven't showed yoo all the garden cats, yet", says Dante.
"I'm savin' da rest fur next week. I hope yoo has enjoyed da toor."
Dante is able to relax because he knows he's right where he belongs. A cat gardener in a cat garden is like a round peg in a round hole. They just fit.
