The Conker Season
Saturday 2nd September 2000, West Yorkshire
|TREES are still green in the park but, in a foretaste of autumn, their fruits are beginning to drop to the ground. Their are few capsules of Beech mast and a few of spiky fruits of the Horse Chestnut are lying under the trees planted by the Victorians alongside the carriage drive.
The conkers in the capsules (far right) have yet to ripen.
