As we had an extremely warm and sunny month of February everything started to grow and bloom.
THIS IS MY CORKSCREW HAZEL( corylus avellana contorta) AT THE END OF JANUARY
You can already see the small catkins here and there.
Exactly one month further (end of February) the SAME bush looked like this :
Above you can see the same tree and the catkins are already at the end of their bloom and loosing a lot of yellow pollen. Amazing don’t you think ? It never had so many catkins as it has this year.
The weather has changed a lot since last wednesday, it is a lot colder, windy and very wet but we need every drop we can get. Last Summer was the hottest and driest ever.
Have a great week all and I hope you can all see that Spring is underway.
