Our Favorite Guests

Each year, beginning in early March, hundreds of interesting guests arrive for their annual visit. They’re here to enjoy the various types of plants and flowers growing in our yard. Visitors are encouraged to climb up, crawl over and consume some varieties. Many stay for about a month during summer, aside from the final generation that hibernates through the winter as chrysalides.

Who IS That Masked Man?

Hugo: Man of a Thousand Faces was created by Alan Ormsby and released by Kenner toy company in 1975. Perhaps the only toy ever designed with the sole purpose of torturing younger siblings, Hugo did so with the help of several glue-on accessories such as a wig, sideburns, eyebrows, mustache and goatee. His kit contained many other completely awful items like noses, chins, warts, scars, fangs, a bandage (with fake bloodstains), an eye patch, glasses and mask. He lacked legs, but made up for this with a pullstring mechanism to operate his disturbing movable arms. Hugo would later go on to make guest appearances on The Pee-wee Herman Show.
