I love seeing the male Hazel catkins when they come out 😄 Have you spotted any of the tiny female flowers elsewhere on the stems? You have to look really close as they are tiny!

I love coming home to the bank full of snowdrops and the #willow tree on the bank dripping with catkins - a sign of spring 😊

Aren’t they beautiful. Is it just me or are the catkins bigger this year?

My OH was in Nepal a few years ago and texted me with a photo of Everest with a jelly baby on a wall in front and the text... little thing near, big thing far away 😉😂
