Hazel catkins

There’ve been catkins for some time now on the hazel trees along the drive, but only today did they look as if they were actually ‘hanging loose’ as opposed to bunched up against the cold.

I could see quite a few of the small red female flowers which supposedly turn into hazel nuts.

Some of them do in fact turn into hazel nuts, but not that it profits us any.

I reckon they’re all earmarked and reserved for the mice, right from when they’re a twinkle in a catkin’s eye.
