Greenfinches

"Two little Greenfinches
Sat on a tree.
Said one to the other:
"Do you love me?"

If the answer is yes perhaps they can get married in the church in the distance. Greenfinches are sociable birds and can be often found visiting gardens if there are some tasty nuts put out by the resident human.

The card was sent on 26th August 1909
but contains no message of love but one of relief and a question from Lucy:  "Home again and I am not sorry. Nellie came Monday and is stopping until Saturday. She came to our Place so we had to sleep three in a bed what do you think about it. Remember me to G".  So that is Lucy and Nellie and an unknown third in a very crowded bed.
