We first find the brothers stalking a squirrel. They are side by side in the garden, between the two trees -- a sunset maple and a crabapple tree. Both of these are dwarf trees which are better suited to a backyard because they won't get overgrown.
You will note that the grass is rather sparse in the area surrounding the trees. It's hard to grow grass there because of the shade from the trees. Dante has suggested to Daddy that he try some premium grass seed again, but he has to wait until the weather is warm enough. We still have frost warnings!
Dylan hunkers down to try to CATmouflage himself, but the grass is just too thin.
The evil squirrel just laughs at him from the branches of the tree.
Dante also watches from the opposite side, but he too cannot hide his bright red fur from the keen eyes of his prey.
Although Dante really enjoys the look and feel of the long grass, he knows that Daddy needs to cut it.
So, it's clear there's work to be done in the back yard to fix it up. Some grasses are too sparse, and some grasses are too long. Let's just hope the weather warms up so Dante and Daddy can plant more seeds where they're needed. And that the rain holds off, so Dante can supervise Daddy when he cuts the lawn.
A gardening cat's work is never done!
