    Climbing and falling out of trees, that takes me back to my school days in the 50's, never saw any bullying in the playground due to conkers tbh, it was just very competitive along with games of marbles. ( not allowed any more either). But I agree totally about the best conkers were those that had already fallen. I had one or two that I remember that were reigning school champions. Well for a 'day or two' any way Lol.
    Thanks for bringing back some memories Michael!!!

    Acer saccharinum (very popular as street trees here) and Acer platanoides :

    Under the one in the soil that still retains red leaves on, and a detail, a leaf that looks like Rasta Sunrise ;0)
