conkers!

Monday 22nd September 2014:

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!! IMG_8081

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.

Today I am thankful it is conker season!
