Dying with Chestnut Leaves

An Experiment

Photo by Julia Weihe on Unsplash Picture of a green chestnut leaf. Five lobed leaves with somewhat serrated edges.

At our cabin on Whidbey Island, we have a large horse chestnut tree. The tree is just over a century old now. My grandfather planted the tree which was a gift from my great grandfather. Our history on the island goes back a long time. I wrote about this tree previously here. It was Published in Weeds & Wildflowers.
