Well this got the Hound hopping and he did not wish to mess with those prickly orbs. Just shows how clever nature can be at protecting its own.
On the way to the post box the sun was shining and a few shots were taken of these autumnal gifts. With the letter safely posted, the heavens literally opened. Five minutes later, the sun was shining once more and the fruit now had added sparkle.
So from a very changeable day I bring you Sweet Chestnuts, before and after the rain.
I hope by now you are not sick of the autumn fruits, but I think nature can be just amazing.
