i LOVE gathering stuff. give me a piece of land with some of some nature's collectible cast offs and i'm good for like an hour, maybe even two.
yesterday we found a bounty of chestnuts on a cemetery stroll and i filled both sweater pockets and my purse. and it isn't just me. my husband shoved his hoodie full and juggled three more on the walk back.
chestnuts are neat! they're such a rich brown mahogany colour and they come in all these pleasing and varying shapes and you can play conkers with them which is a real game with chestnuts on strings and there's a whole rulebook and if you're good you can go to the world conker championships.
come on over for a conker match! for appetizers, we'll gather nuts from the backyard.
