These photos prove even a chestnut can be a thing of beauty. I have never seen one but have read about them.

Preciosas las fotos...ya con el otoño, es normal ver estos frutos..en España se llaman "castañas"...un beso.
Beautiful closeups Meda. These would be so good roasted.
Dear my blogging friends thank you all for your nice and friendly comments.This is a short info about this fruit. This chestnut is not edible. This kind of chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) we call as „divlji kesten“. I think that it is literarily means „wild chestnut“ in English but I found in the dictionary „horse chestnuts“. The flowers and bark and fruits of horse chestnuts are used in folk medicine because of its beneficial effect on the walls of capillaries and veins. Except in folk medicine, horse chestnut extract is used in various creams for the treatment of veins and smoothing wrinkles. The horse chestnut tree is a favourite tree in the parks because of its beauty, its beautiful leaves and flowers in cone shaped forms. It grows up to 20 meters and it reaches age of 200 years.
They look good enough to eat, but since they are not edible, its nice to know they have a medicinal use. These photos are so well composed. Lovely.
I guess there are different kinds of chestnuts. These photos are quite lovely. I remember finding some in Canada that also were not edible.
Bravo, this rather good phrase is necessary just by the way
The excellent message, I congratulate)))))
