Conker case

DAY 123 (6 AUGUST) – Horse chestnut capsule (Aesculus hippocastanum) (Farnham Park)

On a day when the sun was in and out, I managed to catch this spiky horse chestnut capsule with the light reflecting on it. It will, of course, yield a conker in time – or maybe two or three. But the likelihood sounds about as much as human twins or triplets.

Odd horse chestnut fact: it’s native to much of Europe but specifically (according to Wikipedia anyway) as far north as Gastrikland in Sweden. Sounds like a new deli section at Ikea.
