One of these little beauties nearly hit me on the head when they fell from the horse-chestnut tree near where I parked the car. One nut attracted to another you might say. The loud thud on the car roof made me wince even though I was several feet away and made we wonder what might have happened if I had been standing where the car was parked. Hence the title of this post.

Well, it was an excuse to collect a handful of conkers. I doubt I shall enter any competition, but their shininess has its appeal.
