conker hunting...

Yesterday we were on a mission - to find conkers!
The boys and I visited my parents, as the park close to their home has huge old Horse Chestnut Trees. For years we have gone to these trees to find the shiny brown conkers, they usually have plenty, but this year there were hardly any. I have been told this quite common all over the country, but nontheless Charlie was determined to find some.
Rufus loved picking up the pretty yellow Ash leaves and flinging them into the air.  He suits autumn, his strawberry blonde hair just glows in the watery sunshine.
Charlie found a huge branch - and with help carried all the back to my parents home for the fire.
He must get his squirrelling ways from me!


  1. Conkers are so very British! They also never fail to make crave hot chocolate!!! Weird? x

  3. Oooh lovely shiny conkers- good haul! Love the boys coats too- they look very practical and warm x

  4. Great pictures! The first one is cute ♥

  5. Lovely photos. I'm liking the coat/eye colour coordination in the first pic too! Conker hunting is such a good autumn activity - I remember having a shoebox full of conkers under my bed as a child that I was very proud of!

  6. Yes I agree, the best photos! It feels like most foraged things have been in short supply this year, lets hope for a bumper year next year xx

  7. Gorgeous photos Lou! xo

  8. Great photos!
