Green Balls

Yes, another Autumn themed photo. I told you you'd be sick of it by the end of the week! These green balls were covering the ground, they must be related to the Horse Chestnut tree but had no conkers inside, so I've no idea what they are. Any thoughts? Tash, you are always good at finding things out when I can't be bothered!

I'll let the title pass, although had it been on my blog you wouldn't!:)

Look like green sea urchins to me. What the hell are they doing in your neck of the woods?

No idea, but don't step on them!

Different variety? Be interested in the answer too. Maybe they already had the conker taken out of them.

Look a bit prickly! Great closeup.

Looks painful if stepped on... barefooted. LoL!

I think they are chestnuts, just undeveloped ones, no? Keep your tootsies away from them...
