Happy St. Urho's Day!


What? You have never heard of Saint Urho?
Chance and I found Saint Urho last October and took some photographs, last year I blogged about this legend and shared a recipe, you may enjoy that story here!

October 16, 2008..It was a beautiful day to visit this tiny park in Menahga, Minnesota. Today it is a feast for my wintery eyes:)

I was looking at the statue, and thinking, "that can not be a giant grasshopper can it?". And yes indeed it was.......

No wonder he ran around yelling at them, they look like they could eat people. Ha.
