    Default South Carolina

    Saw a large field of goldenrod (39o 21' 27.48" N 91o 07' 52.12" W) near my office at 8081 GSRI Avenue here in Baton Rouge just beginning to bloom. Should be a nice view in a week with the blossoms in full bloom.

    CAMELIA! Today is january 28th and I did my inspection of all hives today. BIG NEWS: Camelias are a major winter food source in the South.

    Background is that for the past two to three weeks my hives have been wildly active, so much I could see the clouds of bees from a distance. I made three or four times ovserving where I saw bright yellow pollen and some red pollen.

    Yesterday i went to my neighbor's cammelia bushes to observe and they were covered with my italians. My neighbor is probably quarter mile away. Within a 3 mile radius there are probably 15 Camelia bushes in full bloom.

    for those of you who don't know Camelias, the pollen is so thick you can get it on your hands by touching the bloom. (I am not a gardener so I will defer to those here who know their stuff on cammeilas.)

    Today, checks inside the revealed very strong colonies of italians, and small clusters of NWC. two italians were light on honey stores, and I will have to supplement.

    The colonies had brought in a honey that had a pink tint to it. (your guess is as good as mine on that, but odds are it's cammelia.)

    Big Grin Mesquite flowering in southern Arizona

    Mesquite started flowering approximately 30 March 2007 along SR 85 from Gila Bend to Ajo and Why, Arizona. Shrubs in full flower now on 08 April 2007. AHB foragers all over the flowers.

    Drove to Tucson yesterday to stop by Southwest Bee Supply. Most of the mesquite stands along SR 86 east of Sells on the Tohono O’odham Nation have yet to flower.

    Cool Saguaros in southern Arizona

    Some of the Saguaros (Carnegiea gigantea) in and around Ajo to Why Arizona have begun flowering as of 13 April 2007. Zip code is 85321 for both towns.

    Many of the older Saguaros in the western portion of the Tohono O'Odham Nation (villages of Gu Vo and Menengers Dam) south into adjacent Sonora, Mexico were in bud last week.

    Dave, use zip code for Sells, Arizona (85634) for the western portion of the Tohono O'Odham Nation even though the towns are located in the western and southwestern portion of the Nation respectively.

    Mesquite and palo verde flowering are well past peak in this portion of Arizona.
