Constance celebrates her Finnish roots by re-enacting the feat of the legendary St Urho. She is wearing her green and purple festival finery and declaiming: “Heinäsirkka, heinäsirkka, mene täältä hiiteen!”

  1. I see Constance is wearing royal purple and Nile green to enact the brave feat of chasing away the grasshoppers. How brave she is, considering her size!

  2. Great and colorful photo . So impressive. Hetty Hickory was delighted with this pic. Of course anything involving the dispatch of “pests” makes her tiny little shriveled heart just sing
