365 Frankendael day 275

Today I noticed these male catkins on the big Hazel trees near my home.


I’ve read some comments about them being poisonous. I’m not interested in eating them even if they are edible because without then on the trees we wouldn’t have a chance if collecting Hazelnuts in the autumn. This tree I’m particular is on the sunny park edge of Oosterpark and produces heaps of nuts in a good year.
