It’s not easy being green

It’s not easy being green — Kermit the Frog.

I’ve never been one to engage in the all-out celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. However, since March 17 is upon us, I thought I would share the greenest green-on-green photo I could find in my files to highlight that universal holiday.

I took this shot of what I believe to be a bullfrog sunning itself in a wildlife reserve section of a park in Albany, Oregon last August. In keeping with the tradition of the day, the frog was likely saying, “It’s not easy being green.” Then, again, my hearing isn’t what it used to be either.

Nevertheless, Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
