Wind in the Walnuts

it has been a funny old Autumn thus far with a very warm September and October, still in shorts and t-shirts temperatures.
We decided to go on the hunt for Walnuts; hoping that the recent rain and blustery wind would have brought some down.
We had been very busy previously, and not had time to check out our favourite trees before-hand, so we didn't know what to expect.
On our arrival, it did not look so good, but we spotted a few broken branches on the grass, signs that the local kids had been trying to knock down nuts.
We soon tuned into the Walnuts and started to find them nestled amongst the tufts of greenery. We quickly filled our pockets, and when we put them all together at home, we ended up with about half a shoebox full.
