What a fantastic statue this is. I would have took many of this for sure. The story behind it is charming as well.

I think you remember that the holiday how called, "Memorial Day" was, for generations called, "Decoration Day," a day set aside to decorate graves.

Nice snow covered reminder that we got a ways to go to spring.

Did you forget that it's Theme Day today? Better watch out, or the blogger police will get you. The statues do just as well, tho!

Hi Barb, here I am for the week recollection of your posts!
This first one looks much more interesting than most grafitti around... ;) Beautiful picture, and the sunny snow scenery helps a lot! Also loved the four Huntingdon Church posts, as well as the Steeple!
Talking churches, I posted on an surprising one: the Rila Monastery!
Have a great weekend!
