Conkers Bonkers!!

While in Bury, walking through the Abbey Gardens we saw this notice attached to an Horse Chestnut Tree. We laughed and discussed how mad it was that we couldn't predict that risk for ourselves, took a photo and moved on. Then on the way home we heard on the radio that Sky News had been there to tell the story.

A council in Suffolk has pinned a warning notice to a horse chestnut tree after a passerby was hit on the head by a falling conker.

This little chap followed us around the gardens and posed for a few photos!


  1. Love it!
    Hope you bought some home as they are supposed to good at keeping spiders away :)

  2. Yes I do have a few conkers for the spiders to play with!
