I'm from Ohio..."The Buckeye State" and when I was little it was a great joy to find a buckeye tree and the pretty smooth shiny brown buckeyes beneath it. Here in Sarajevo, especially Veliki Park, the buckeye trees (horse chestnuts as they are known in Europe) are common and HUGE. They hurt when the spiked balls land on your head in the fall. The trees are flowering furiously right now, no doubt doing their part to contribute to the pollen and general "hay fever" and itchy eyes around town.
