I am so happy we are back in England for the Autumn as I really love this time of year. This morning I walked to the park and was filled with joy to discover it was conker time!!
I could not resist picking up a whole bunch of these shiny lovely chocolatey coloured beautiful treasures. Each one was glowing as it sat proudly on the floor, on a cushion of moss or partially hidden by a leaf.
There is something dreamy and nostalgic about conkers – they remind me of collecting pocketfuls with my friends on our way home from school and socking them in vinegar with my dad to make them strong for conker fights.
