Common Hazel catkins

This week my Flora and Fauna Friday post is part one of a two part post.

These are Common Hazel (Corylus avellana) catkins, the male flowers that produce the pollen that pollinate the Hazelnut producing female flowers. Photographed in an abandoned orchard at Faddiley near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England. The catkins and flowers are produced in late winter or early spring before the leaves appear.
