It's the Little Things!


We saw our first chestnuts on a walk today. I'm pretty sure my excitement in seeing them goes back to childhood when they were the best surprises lying on the grass for me to compulsively collect. I feel like a little kid because I will never not want to pick them up when I see them. Have you ever really stopped to look at a chestnut? There are whorls and swirls in different shades of brown and red. They shine as though polished. I even found two nestled in the soft white bed of their pod together. It's the little things, I tell ya, that make this life a sweet one.
