Autumnal Colour

It's literally raining conkers today, they're pouring down from the horse chestnut trees in Craiglockart Dell. They are really beautiful but I imagine they'd be painful if they hit you on the head, as they're mostly falling from quite a height!

I don't think I've ever before seen so many beautiful conkers. Apparently the young people in groups who have been attending events at the Water of Leith Visitor Centre have been really enjoying the conkers, though I forgot to ask what they were doing with them!

The hornbeam trees are also beautiful at the moment

and this fungus, which I haven't yet identified, but hope to be able to (if you know what it is, feel free to let me know in the comments).

Conkers? We are seeing a lot of acorns. Pretty colors and love the fungus photo. Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy new week!

Haven't seen too many conkers … but a lot of acorns.

All the best Jan
