2017 Weekly photo challenge (week 36) Found

While we were on holiday in France a couple of weeks ago, we found some treasure… conkers!

The first one was spotted next to the Aeroscopia museum outside Toulouse (above), but we hit the jackpot in Carcassonne…

They are now drying out on our window ledge ready to be drilled, stringed up and for battle to commence. 

For those of you reading this in the UK, conkers (or horse chestnuts) won’t seem a big deal, but they don’t grow in Gibraltar, so the Littlest two Postcards have missed out on such autumnal delights. Roll on sore fingers and cries of ‘cheat’!

I’m linking with Nana Cathy and Wild Daffodil for this weekly photo challenge throughout 2017.

  1. The green in front of the cottage has at least 10 horse chestnut trees and very soon all the school children will be out there collecting them to compete in conker battles ~ it is also said they keep spiders at bay …not sure if this is true but Moo will be putting a few on various window ledges in the cottage the same as every year LOL
    Enjoy your Autumnal conker championships 🙂

      1. If you could conduct a formal observation on spider numbers & let Moo know so he can record your findings he would be grateful LOL
