Flora Found: Chestnuts

Flora Found: Backyard Garden

Chestnuts have always been a favourite of mine. Everything from the squat but large growth habits of the trees, to their huge compound leaves and giant spikes of flowers right down to their green spiky casings and smooth dark brown nuts. Although said to be inedible and a cure for arthritis at the same time rumoured to be great for racehorse joints, these odd seeds are the last in our series of Flora Found. I'll be sure to post more in the growing season next year, but as the growing season stops production grows in the studio. The season of neglecting the studio for the garden and ended and reversed with neglected the garden for the studio.
