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!
