Conkers by carole_sandford

Conkers

Outside of the Uk probably known as the fruit of the Horse Chestnut tree. Kids take great in collecting them & some even still play the game of conkers.
I think many places have now banned the game of conkers on health under safety rules. This generation is missing out on so much fur by being overprotected

@radiogirl I didn’t mean fruit as such, just that this is what the tree produces. They are not edible & I suppose they are more nut like.

Love it, what an outstanding shot. fav. I used to love playing conkers when I was a child. I hear they have banned it in some places now because it is dangerous. Life is dangerous, get over it, ha ha.
