Photo of the Week

The hazel Corylus avellana is a monoecious tree with male flowers on hanging catkins and tiny female bud-like flowers with red stigmas. The hazel does not rely on insects for pollination so hazel flowers appear long before insects begin to emerge. Instead, the hazel relies on the wind and its flowers are designed accordingly. Catkin is derived from the Dutch word katteken, which means kitten, since the flowers look like fluffy kitten tails.
