new guardian of the garden

What'd'ya think of him?!  He was a Christmas gift.  Referred to as a Budda Frog, I think I have to correct this to acknowledge that is isn't just a frog.  This is definitely Kermie.  The muppet, Jim Henson's alter ego, and my hero, Kermit the Frog.  But no longer green -- he is gold.  Gold!  The boys think he's valuable because he's gold and heavy.  If they hock him I'll be mad.

I am hoping that Kermie will bring green-ness to my gardens.  "It's not easy being green."  Or growing green things.  So I need all the help I can get.

The question is, where does Kermie belong?  I don't have a meditation garden or "quiet little spot" around here, anywhere.  (The closest to a private space I get is the laundry room, all 4'x5' of it, shared only with the laundry, clean and dirty, all the various cleaners from our home, a box of rags, 31 rolls of toilet paper, 14 rolls of paper towels and all sorts of other Large Packages.) Kermie belongs outdoors.

Please take a look at Kermie as he visited different locations in the yard today.  It will all look different when Kermie brings Green! to the gardens (and pink, yellow, orange, white...) so I may have to make a change later, but I'd like your opinions.  Where does Kermie look best?

A: on the new terrace wall (easily seen from the kitchen)

B: under the birdfeeders
(he'd get sat upon which might be cool, but also shat upon...)

C: at the lamp post at the driveway/sidewalk/house corner in the front

D: at the front door

E: at the corner of the "woods", grass and sidewalk
(not much demarcation there.  Dead grass turns to really dead grass
turns to out of control ground covers escaping into said grass.)

  1. How about under the little tree behind the lamp post in picture C?
