Description:

On an old branch of a living Hazel. I've been looking for this for ages and it does look a little like the lower cups on Fenwickfield's 1st photo. http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/255613
I've added 2 photos from today to show the development.

I do think it is Janet as there were some like this on the tree I got mine from but I did not photograph them.
