130/365 Horse Chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum)

I got up close and personal with a conker tree this afternoon. I pass some on the way to town (near the Toll House) and have been meaning to pull over and take some pictures while the blossom is out. I have never looked closely at the flowers before so was interested to see pink and yellow centres together like this. Luckily a lot of the branches were almost to the ground. In autumn we'll be looking for conkers.
