Conker Cube

Conker Cube, originally uploaded by escher (waiting for Autumn).

Well what is there to say? Its a cube made out of conkers.

Conkers aren't what the used to be, they've turned soft. I remember collecting them from the Horse Chestnut tree that hunger over my primary school playground. The green cases were very spiky and took a precision stomp to retrieve the brown nut from within.

These ones I collected this morning came in three varieties.

1) A little bit spiky
2) Bumps instead of spikes
3) Like miniature coconuts, soft and with no spikes at all

It's health and safety gone mad!
