“Few of our younger people have seen the low shrubs called Hazel Trees. But not so many years ago they were plentiful enough in most sections of the province. These trees produced hazel nuts or ‘filberts’, enclosed in a leafy cluster of a light reddish-brown colour. Persons who have picked these nuts year after year will tell you that on a certain date they disappear overnight as if by magic.”
