Grandma in a Tree - Wordless Wednesday

(Original Image and Text, Copyright (c) 2011 Cynthia Shenette) I have no idea what the heck is going on here.  Do any of you have photos of your grandmother in a tree?  My grandmother, Antonina (Bulak) Szerejko, is the young woman in the middle sitting in the crook of the tree.  Her sister, Helen Bulak, is the young woman standing on the ground.  I'm not sure exactly, but I think my grandmother's cousin, Sophie (Kowalewski) Konopka, is the girl standing in the tree at the top of the picture.  I'd love to know the back-story on this picture...

I do not have any photos of my grandmother in a tree. More's the pity.
