Conkers

It looks like there will be a good crop this year.

My attention was drawn to the chestnut trees the other day when I saw a group of youngsters gathered underneath them picking up some fallen chestnuts. They must have been blown down by the wind as what's there doesn't yet look like it's ready to fall of its own accord, though one did fall on the roof of the car with a loud bang as we drove under it the other day.

It's good to see the estate going through another generation of youngsters and them taking an interest. They also look like they understand that the wait will be worth it as the chestnuts grow to maturity and fall to the ground.

Not a stick in sight.
