    Default Is the flow over in Piedmont NC

    For the past several days, my bees are not working nearly as much as before. I see them on white clover some and that's all. At night I do not hear the buzzing of them drying nectar. But, I do not see many getting water like I normally do when the flow is over. There are a number of Sourwood trees around me, but only one that I can walk right to and it has no blooms on it at all. Will it still bloom or were the blooms frozen?

    My flow has always ended the 1st week of June. Is it over for this area?

    Yes, the major flow in the piedmont of NC is over. There are several minor flows in progress or still yet to occur. White clover is still going strong due to recent rains and this weeks cooler weather. The Persimmon flowers are just finishing, but some trees were still being worked this morning. Sourwood looks to be a few weeks away, and could be ok, if we continue to get some rainfall.

    Thanks Beecole,
    I hadn't seen any bloom on my Sourwood trees yet.
