Conkers, holiday, watching animals

Prickly green shells breaking open, to reveal the first conkers, "fresh-fire coal chestnut falls".

Anticipating a forthcoming holiday.

Watching squirrels, or almost any other animal. One of the attractions seems to be that we see human postures in, for example, the way a squirrel sits up to eat, holding a nut in its paws and nibbling it. Or is it that we see, reflected in an animal's behaviour, the animal buried within us?
