Horse Chestnut Flowers


Most horse chestnut trees around here have white flowers, but there is also a pink variety.

These are just beautifil. Even the big leaves are lovely. I knew about the chestnuts, but not these flowers. Did you know how much the chestnut tree is connected with Anne Frank, it was her sign of hope. Check out my blog from September 29 of last year "A Sign Of Hope." You can also see our cherstnut tree pods there.

Great photo. We never realized how beautiful these trees are.

Thanks Ginny. I went back and read your old post. I've read the Diary several times but I did not remember what kind of tree it was Anne could see from their window. I had a post back on 16 Nov 2009 (in the Picture Book) with the fruits of the tree, entitled Conkers. There was no text in that post either but a discussion followed in the comments about that name for them.

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
