Nice! I think my tree Harzel is supposed to have catkins since he's a Corkscrew Hazel, but there's not sign of anything on him other than a couple of dried leaves. According to info I have read, he should have some. Lovely to see the fairy :)

Don't know if it's my PC but I have tried to load this page several times and can't get the photos...

Just thought you should know

It's always so much more magical at this time of year to find treasures like these in the garden isn't it. x

Whilst in the town centre the other day I was looking at some catkins and noticed dozens of hazelnuts on the ground. It's the first time I've ever seen them -- was very happy
