After these dark, damp, dull, dreary, dismal January days .....

That said, these hazel catkins were spotted in Jubilee Wood just this week — hazel is a deciduous broadleaf tree native to the UK.

Such sights are a sure sign that Spring is just around the corner!

This is an interesting image because the yellow male catkins appear before the leaves and hang in clusters; ordinarily from mid-February.

So, here we are in January and already large clusters of these catkins can readily be seen in Jubilee Wood, Tattenhall.

Thanks to members of TWiG for sending this image into the Webteam.
