Like Randy Seaver, I’m incapable of doing a Wordless post so I have shamelessly copied his (not so) title, however, I offer you this from Great Granny’s album:
I think the lady on the left is Bell Auchmuty and the lady on the right is her sister, Mary, who married David Hardie, my great grandmother’s brother.
And I have NO IDEA if it is an egg (chocolate or otherwise) that she is holding, or a conker, or something entirely different. Suggestions on a
postcard comment please, to “Images Past”. And, no I didn’t have much success with my conkers, soaked in vinegar or not!
I’m now reckoning that it’s a plum that she is holding – David farmed in Perthshire, where soft fruits grow well, so I think it’s a prize specimen!
