Noticing baby conkers on the way to the park

Toddler girl and I went to the park at the weekend.  It was a lovely day, and we spent ages talking about all the things we could see on the way.

We passed a few horse chestnut trees, and these baby conkers really caught toddler girl's eye.

They were really small, probably just a cm or two across and such a bright vibrant green compared to the thick green leaves.  I was also amazed to see the beginnings of brown spots on the leaves, a sure sign of the inevitability of autumn and the richness of colours those leaves will turn into.

I can't wait to go back and collect some of the conkers to play with later in the year, but in the meantime it's lovely to enjoy summer and notice them growing.
