Wonderful pictures of your island. Dropping horse chestnuts means autumn is really there. Chestnuts always brings to mind Christmas is approaching and and the year will end soon. Enjoy that lovely place in the autumn weather. Thanks for those photos and the sketch note, always enjoyable.

A wonderful collection of photos, each has its own beauty. It would be hard to choose but the chestnuts is a really nice one with a sweet memory. Of course, Alexnote holds a special place for me & it’s a lovely surprise to see it today. You do indeed have it all. Thank you for sharing.

About the horse chestnuts - conkers, we called them in the schoolyard - I’ve heard that strewing them around your house discourages spiders. I pass on the wisdom for what it’s worth -

No wonder you couldn't choose. That bike route looks great and what a stunning picture. As to the horse chestnuts - sounds like a great tradition! Never heard of keeping horse chestnuts for good luck. Maybe you can put it in a jacket pocket? You're spoiling us - another great picture. Those clouds and the colors. Hope you made it home before the rain. And your village really has it all - I wouldn't know where to look for a kite shop in my area. Nicely sketched alexnote. Hope you're having a great Wednesday.

Thank you for posting the lovely photos and memory about your mother and the horse chestnut. It would be a wonderful tribute to her if you place one next to her photo in your home. Your alexnote sketch was also wonderful, you are so talented!

Beautiful! I am in awe of your talent when I look at your Alexnote.

I liked the suggestions here for the horse chestnut, next to a photo of your Mum, or carry it in your pocket. My great-grandfather had a 25 cent coin with the year of his birth that he carried with him every day until he died.
