seeds



So I've belatedly bought a digital camera... it's only a budget one, and I won't name and shame it, since I have no ambition of taking overwhelming pictures like the ones you can see nearly every day on Such Stuff.

These are the conkers (botanically, seeds) of Aesculus Indica, the Indian Horse Chestnut - wrinkled, blackish-brown and with a small eye. Conkers would be jewels if they could be kept shiny, but they lose their beauty in arid rooms, and these were already a little spoiled when I thought to leave them discreetly on the nearest verge overnight, hoping my camera would show up in the morning.
