They crack a smile...
It takes a while,
but they beguile
the child in me.

Good Sunday morning, Gabriela!
A big smile, indeed :), but what are those, fruits of some kind ??
Their colours are wonderful against a grey wood.
Warm thanks for your kind comments on my site!

"Chestnuts roasting by an open fire..." will be running through my mind this morning, at least until we sing our first hymn in church. :D
When God created chestnuts, he exercised his sense of humor IMO.
Did you pick them up from the ground and nestle them there for your photo? I love your penned words!

A big fave (Flickr-term) for this picture containing not only chestnuts nut also humor and beauty.

A wonderful composition!
Yesterday I picked a few chestnuts for decoration in my living room. Chestnuts here called horse chestnut.

@Nilla: Nilla, your photo shows horse chestnuts which are COMPLETELY different from Japanese Chestnuts, the former being toxic for people, the latter edible. Horse chestnut trees belong to quite another family of trees than Japanese or Chinese chestnuts. There are Horse Chestnut trees in Japan, too...cultivated mainly
for their beautiful appearance (they are very tall) , for the decorative chandelier-like flowers and for offering deep shade underneath. Otherwise, only deer seem to be able to eat the horse chestnuts as they are able to break the toxins.The chestnuts you see on my image are the edible type!
Some looks as monkeys!!
