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 :)

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
