Orphans in a tree

Do you like trees? Did you use to climb on top of the biggest branch when you were little?
This was one of my favourite games when I was a little girl!
So many good memories...
After days of rain, the sun has finally decided it was time to put an end to this endless hide and seek game.
So I decided to go out and take some photos of trees. Even in the Winter there is something so noble about them.
The rays of the sun looked like gold covering the bark.
It was magical!

Then the reflection of the sun seemed like little drops of silver shining in the light.The ground had so much to drink that it decided to spit out all that it couldn't swallow.
The field looked more like a swamp! And...
Can you see?
In the branches!!!!
Look!!! It looks like pieces of a photo.

So I rushed back home to find out.
And this is what I found.
(yes..ha!ha! I am wearing a Yeti jumper!)

Big sigh...
another photo...

One of the little girls already appears on a photo previously found.
There are two names at the back:

Solange & Marie...
These are French names!

There is also a date:1940
I wonder how many more photos are out there?
It feels like Mother Nature is trying to tell me a little piece of History...

Now, you have me intrigued. I have got to know more, Patricia!

And I see why we are friends, I loved trees so much as a child and would climb to the highest point.

I can't wait to see if more photos will turn up and what their stories might be. The little girls look so sweet, I just want to hug them!

Ooooh I loved climbing trees when I was little, but I think I use to get in trouble for doing it.:O)
