(spent the afternoon with us)
from faraway marne
Annie and my mother have been friends since their childhood, as Annie's parents were friends of my grandparents, and the previous generation before them. My maternal grandfather spent part of WWII in the Marne with his parents and sister and they went to Annie's grandparents' farm for supplies.
Annie is spending a week nearby, walking everyday. Wednesday was a day off, so my parents invited her over.
Extra: a male Lucanus cervus on the terrace
