Horse Chestnut

Description:

Horse chestnuts trees and their deep brown conkers are for many the essence of Autumn. Conkers are formed when insects pollinate the  horse chestnut flower. These flowers then develop into glossy, mahogany conkers inside a spiky, vividly green husk. In this image, the horse chestnut fruit is visible inside the husk.

 

Do you remember playing with conkers when you were younger?
