    saw a wild purple vetch bloom at the mail box today.
    wild mustard I've seen for the last couple weeks here and there.
    wild radish I've noticed out today here and there
    some kind of creeping ground cover with purple blooms, don't know what it is, but seems to be some kind of flowerbed type plant around my propane tank that is in the shade all day.

    Red Bud (flowering quince) blooms opening and buzzing with bees, is a very good early bloom that bees love.
    Wild mustard and radish here also
    20+ years, raise my own queens, feed when needed, I treat but have not perfected varroa management yet.

    Ceonothus (California Lilac); the white/pink variety. Many of the chaparral hills in this area look like they're dusted with snow, the bloom is so heavy.

    Comment: The Acacia trees are starting to come on strong, but only a few are close to being in full bloom.

    Manzanita

    There are about 10 huge plants on a south facing slope that started blooming yesterday and this is about 4-5 weeks early for us. The buds on the north facing side and ones in the shade are still tightly closed but my bees are going crazy for the open ones today as the high is supposed to be close to 60 deg and the low last night was 28 deg. I haven't seen any evidence of other Manzanita in the area blooming yet but I haven't really looked either.

    Just got the first blooms on my lemon tree, Still has fruit on it from last season. Bees are strongly working Rosemary and one Eucalyptus tree that just bloomed. Many more Eucalyptus ready to pop open. Nights are down to about 33-35 F with one night dropping to 27F. Days warm to mid 50's but today warmer at 67F. Last month (Dec) bees were working pollen on a Loquat tree. Rain here two weeks ago, hillsides now sprouting grasses.

    buckwheat

    Blooms just open and still in the white - no pink nor rust yet. VERY few bees.

    93023 Ojai, California
    Sage has been extermely poor this year as last year - perhaps due to no rain before the bloom date?

    Black Mustard has been going strong for 6 weeks, and should continue through fall.

    Matilija Poppy is out last 2 weeks and should continue through June.

    Many asters sp. in bloom - VERY FEW bees on them.

    California Pepper Trees just opening now - LOTS of bees going berzerk on them.

    Golden Oak trees in bloom - some attention from bees

    some poison oak already in bloom (very early) and the bees are loving it.
