Sweet Chestnuts

Photo taken in Our Garden October 18th 2012
An autumnal favourite of ours and we enjoyed them freshly roasted in an open fire over the weekend.

Today I am participating in two memes. Macro Monday and Inspiring Photography

    Enjoy your roasted chestnuts. I'm thinking that a year ago, at this time, I was in Italy. Sigh.

  16. Isn't it amazing that something so smooth comes out of something so full of spines?

  17. Looks like a little hedgehog ! This year I have only seen very few chestnuts, due to the awful weather, they didn't grow.

  25. Lovely fall shot!
    Growing up we had a chestnut tree up on the hill above our home. My Dad always collected them and cracked them open for us. I prefer them raw.
    Thanks for lovely memories and for your visit!

  28. I don't think I have ever tasted them! They sound yummy hot and roasted over the fire in winter.

  29. I love all the textures!! Is that spiny thing the casing for the chestnut? So different from the casing for a horse chestnut!

Welcome to my photography blog, where I share the world as seen through my lens. All commenter's will receive a visit back from me but no longer individual replies unless you have a question, which I will respond to here. Your praise and kind words are always appreciated but to keep saying thankyou to you all individually, in an original way is not easy. So I am saying it here instead, a massive thankyou from my heart for all the wonderful support, your comments are a great encouragement to me.
