Spring in September

Chartreuse really catches your eye this time of year. While most other leaves are on the verge of changing to red, yellow, orange, the horse chestnuts, after having dropped all of their mature leaves due to anthracnose, are pushing out brand new ones.

Out of these sticky buds...

come both leaves and flowers.

I'm not sure these will get pollinated. Even if they do, the fruit will probably not make it to maturity as winter is around the corner.

Nearby, a mature fruit from the first wave was sitting on top of a monument.
