While walking the dogs recently, I spotted this pod that fell off a neighbor's buckeye tree. It was completely closed when I first found it but I took it home & watched it slowly split open while sitting on my kitchen counter. The inside revealed two buckeye nuts. I finally broke it open the rest of the way to claim the nuts. They were beautiful, shiny & dark brown. One I gave to Lynne, my art teacher friend. I let my friend, Joan, pick out her own buckeye from my collection. For good luck.
