Fall bounty - chestnuts

Some Autumn bounty from our area.
A colorful rustic birdhouse with an apple and a pear, from 2 trees nearby.
A version of this photo is available at:

This is what CHESTNUTS look like, freshly picked after they fell to the ground in their protective cupule.
Beware! 
Those outer burrs are so spiney & prickly.
interesting note: Chestnuts are a typical delight in Croatia, where they are sold , roasted, by street vendors. There's also a delicious whipped-cream dessert I wish was available here in the States.
(Yes, there is a pear hiding in this basket.)
