Chestnut


Another neat natural thing I have in my collection is this chestnut from the huge tree behind our house.  They are so smooth and I love the way they feel between your fingers, but they come in the spiniest hulls I have ever seen.  The hulls are covered in two-inch long needles and are the most unpleasant thing to clean up.  How the squirrels get into those hulls without injuring themselves, I'll never know.
