@lilybee - Thanks very much Sue! I'll be uploading that Lupin photo here in due course! I love how the raindrops attach themselves to the edges of the leaves! 😀

@kathy - Both mine and my dad's Hazel catkins came out at the same time last week! My tree is only tiny and produced them for the first time this year! I've got my fingers crossed that I'll get a few nuts in the autumn! 😀
