Seasonal sign

This lay on the path in our local park the other day, which seems a little early in the year.

Whether that's the effect of the blight-cum-canker visibly affecting the chestnut trees, or an early sign of autumn (along with the way a lot of blackberries round about seem to have fruited and been picked already) - maybe even a portent of an early or cold winter to come - this is a conker in its prime.

All I need now is a bit of string and a skewer. And maybe some vinegar.
