    Citrus is blooming here now. Actually my keylime and lemon trees have been blooming for about a week but the smell of orange blossom is almost overpowering the last few days.

    1. Name - Troy Dere
    2. Zip Code - 32820
    3. Bloom Date - 12/07/06
    4. Plant - (Soft?) Maple Tree
    5. Confidence interval - I found the tree on 12/26 already had seed pods on it, so I figure it had to have been in bloom about 2-3 weeks earlier. I missed the bloom as it was so early I wasn’t even looking for it.


    1. Name - Troy Dere
    2. Zip Code - 32826
    3. Bloom Date – 01/15/07
    4. Plant – Viburnum Shrub Here is a URL to an image of something that looks very close. http://www.rampantscotland.com/colou...m_bn02747a.jpg
    5. Confidence interval – The blooms are about done now though I did see a bee working it last week. 3/5/07 So it is in bloom for almost two months.

    1. Name - Troy Dere
    2. Zip Code - 32820
    3. Bloom Date – 2/13/07
    4. Plant – Orange Blossom
    5. Confidence interval – I found some trees with blooms on them already. It surprised me as this is a bit early. I talked to others on beesource and discovered that the weak trees bloom a week or two earlier than healthy ones. So I’d call mid-feb early bloom. Main bloom is about 1 March for 4 weeks.

    1. Name - Troy Dere
    2. Zip Code - 32817
    3. Bloom Date – 3/11/07
    4. Plant – China Berry here is a URL to the plant. Click on the Flower link to see a close up of the flowers. http://texnat.tamu.edu/CMPLANTS/toxi...hinaberry.html
    5. Confidence interval – I saw the plant in bloom yesterday. I’ve been watching this one and so I know it was not in bloom a week earlier.

    1. Name - Troy Dere
    2. Zip Code - 32817
    3. Bloom Date – 3/12/07
    4. Plant – Palm Bloom Here is a link to a picture that looks just like the one I saw today. http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homep...ng/flowers.htm The Palm Blossom is at the bottom of the page.
    5. Confidence interval – It was not in bloom yesterday, so today was the day it opened for sure.

    I saw both dandelion's and clover in bloom yesterday. In fact about half the dandelions had gone to seed head already - so I think you could put the main bloom date at least a week earlier than yesterday.

    12/3/2007 Dandelions in bloom (in an untidy mowed lawn area)
    12/10/2007 White Dutch Clover in bloom (in an untidy mowed lawn area)

    These were found in Orlando Florida Zip Code 32826

    P.S. It just does not seem right for spring flowers before the new year begins does it? The weather is forecast for 82 and sunny today though - hard to argue with that.

    9\8\2011 blooms are just starting to form.
    Pepper tree.
    I put pollen on the hive today. Hope to build the hive when the flowers open. This honey is used to feed the bees over the winter. I will not harvest the honey till the end of Jan.2012. Thatís when we get the Maple bloom. Thanks to fish-stix for the information and direction.

    Citrus County, Florida, zone 9a

    Weather has been very warm, 80 F highs with lows in 40's at night. "Cold snap" moving in this week (highs below 60 F and lows in high 30 F).

    Pollen of all sorts has been pouring in since winter solstice.

    Pine scrub: Rusty Lyonia is starting and bees working it hard today.

    Backyard: Persian lime is just about done and bloomed out, bees done and moved on. Lemon flower buds still in developing stages.

    Recent mild wet spell with some lower temps (highs in low 70's) really has made a difference.

    Pine scrub: Saw palmetto flow is really starting to cook here. Many other wild flowers are starting to turn on; some early partridge pea is now starting to bloom

    Backyards & landscapes: Magnolias have good blooms. Some bottle brush continues. I have seen the bees working various holly trees and shrubs.
