Horse Chestnut Tree in Spring

At last, a few clear images of the Horse chestnut tree (Aesculus hippocastanum) of the Aquifoliaceae family. Horse chestnuts are popular around Seattle, and this one has been growing in my parent’s yard for as long as I can remember. Unfortunately, I missed the blossoms during my visit to Seattle – and horse chestnuts have some really beautiful flowers!
