In upstate New York, we have a beautiful tree called the horse chestnut. It is in bloom now, and I want to show one if it's flowers to you for #ThursdayTreeLove..
And in the fall, the tree produces inedible nuts that children love to play games with. One game, in particular, conkers, stretches back hundreds of years. There's an entire tradition in Great Britain built around preparing and playing with your horse chestnut nut (conker).
What a lot of history rolled into one majestic tree.
