You can tell that we are fast heading towards autumn, the trees are turning pretty shades of gold and the conkers are falling! Close to our house is a Little horse chestnut tree and this year for the first time there was quite a size able crop of conkers!!
There is something about conkers that are attractive its that beautiful deep conker colour and shine that is so attractive. Somehow you can't stop yourself from rubbing them into a lovely shine.
I am quite pleased with the mini haul, I need to spend some time out collecting at Ayot where there are some huge trees and you can collect carrier bags full of conkers!!!!
