Bergerfurth, near Wesel, Germany.
Ginkgo biloba tree (maidenhair tree) in this afternoon's sunshine.
A fact I didn't know, conkers were used in WW1 for the production of cordite.
Edit: As correctly pointed out by JackW below the picture are not conkers, but that aside, thought it was an interesting article about their WW1 use.
Surely that is a sweet chestnut pictured, with a pointy end?
Quite right, brain not engaged !!!!
I collected about a pound - as cordite production was not an option we put them in the oven and enjoyed the taste of late autumn...
Last throw of the rose.
Autumn walk at Nymans Gardens, West Sussex - it is local and was exercise.
A leisurely stroll by the local park early this morning.
A Shropshire view
Snapshot on my phone from early Sunday evening.
Dusk at the estuary where friends of mine live.
Some lovely photos on this thread. Here are some of the flowers still blooming in my garden as it has been so mild - hydrangea, clematis, fuchsia and miniature sweet peas.
