Seen on the trees bordering the access road to visit grandma...

In autumn, this same road will once again be lined with scores of mid-aged/elderly Chinese beating the living daylights out of the trees to get these fluffy tennis balls down. Down, off the trees, down into waiting buckets and baskets, down into makeshift bags and carriers.

Meanwhile, down at the local grocery stores, abundant supplies of chestnuts at rock bottom prices appear on the shelves... I never did get to find out what granny thought of kids taking fruit off her fruit trees ;)
