Autumn - The Fall


There are far more evergreens than deciduous trees around my part of the village but I did spot a couple of signs as to why Autumn can also be known as Fall:


This is one of the village Horse Chestnut trees ....


where it's not just leaves falling ......



but also the seeds (conkers):


We were lucky one day when about half a dozen conkers all fell at the same time. Fortunately on the road and not on the path where we were walking as they really hit the road at quite a speed.


  1. All our local conker trees have got leaf miner moths burrowing into them, but I do like seeing the gleaming fresh conkers freshly emerged on the ground as I'm running


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
