The Chestnut Tree

Chestnuts by Kim Shannon 

There's a wonderful old Chestnut tree, actually two, in Edward Street, Bowral.  I absolutely love these trees throughout the seasons.   
At the moment the chestnuts are being well protected from the birds in their prickly, burr-like husks.  The nuts will open and drop sooner or later, the Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo's and Galah's and Corella's will be feasting.  
The trees look just as beautiful dressed in their leaves as they do naked with their beautiful winter filigree.
