    It simply means the bees are finding flowers. The weather has been nice in the southeast and there may be a little aster still in bloom in your area. Wild radish (commonly called mustard)is a frequent winter bloomer in cultivated fields, and sometimes henbit is also present. I've also seen a few dandelions this week. You can see some of these cooler weather flowers at: http://pollinator.com/gallery/February/fruit_feb.htm
