Are you a Muppets fan like me? I grew up watching the Muppets and Kermit the Frog was always my favorite character. Well, I had two favorites: Kermit and Slimey the Worm. Kermit's song, "It's Not Easy Being Green" was always so touching, especially when he says, "...it could be nicer being yellow or red or gold...or something colorful like that." To me, green is absolutely beautiful.

|Our beloved family dog, Bosley, has long since passed, but mom uses his house in her garden. Magenta peonies stand out against the green foliage of lamb's ear.|
|A pop of color from a blue chicken (soon to be in my garden!) offsets the green hues of hosta and fern.|

P.S. We really aren't kidding when we say the mosquitoes are the size of dogs in Minnesota. It's true! All that water...
