We went gathering chestnuts.... Horse chestnuts.
Upon finding that conkers are poisonous(though they are apparently useful medicinally) I set out to see what they were good for, outside the fun of gathering that is! I found This great post with ten things to do with them. My favorite things are that they keep away spiders and moths I'm not keen on anything that bite me or wool!
I love learning new things! Autumn just feels like the season for learning doesn't it?
