We have some very tight catkins on our twisted hazel. The snowdrops are nearly flowering and it's 0.6 outside. BRRRRRR

I looked at mine hopefully yesterday, but no signs on that. It is only a baby one still, and last year it had TWO catkins....sweet! ;-)

They look great Barbara, just like all males, showing off. Can you see the female flower?, she should have her red lipstick on.

I wish I could, Docbob - but as they are dangling rather high up over the fence, I'd need a ladder! I hate ladders. :-((((
