Hazel starts blooming, about 14 days later than last year. The male yellow catkins have been there for some time, but now also the tiny female petalless red flowers on top of the female flower buds are there. The first leaves of the wild daffodils peep up through the carpet of brown beech leaves. Even a rare flower bud can be seen. Due to the long cold period in January, the daffodils will start blooming later than last year.
