Blending In

So a fellow came over to check our roof for hail damage. I emerged from the house and stood next to the huge bush we have growing in front of the door. The fellow came up to me and literally jumped. 

“OMG, OMG,” he panted. “I didn’t see you there. You really blended in with those bushes in your green dress. God, I almost had a heart attack. Oh my! Let me catch my breath.”

The guy is in his twenties, so I’m sure he wasn’t about to have a real heart attack. 

Of course, I wanted to blend in here in Illinois but not in a way that makes people jump, you know?
