Autumn treasure

Conkers, leaves, sticks and acorns, they are all treasure to children, and actually adults too if you include the likes of me! Gathering the conkers after prising them from their snug cases, it is a reward to see them in a cup or bucket and play with them, ours were especially useful for being carted around on our little farm, or for the horse to eat! Golden, bronze and blood red Leaves and sticks with a blanket of lichen the colour of mustard are just beautiful to look at.
