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.
