conker.

Those trees there are chestnut trees. 
In Autumn, along with leaves, they drop chestnuts, otherwise known as CONKERS!
I loved collecting them as a child and this last week I've been filling my pockets with them on my morning walks!
They're a bit too small to bother roasting, but I love them for nostalgia's sake.

  1. The house I grew up in had a horse chestnut tree, Gorgeously colored, but not humanly edible. However, they were great for doing naughty kid things with, like throwing them at your brother!
