    northern colorado - 80524 - zone 5

    apples and lilacs have started in the last few days.
    dandelions are still very prolific.
    russian olives are just starting to green up. we have none on our property, but our neighbor to the north seems to tolerate them. the irrigation ditch behind the house is heavily lined with them.

    lindens (basswood to some) started last week and look to be in full swing right now.
    sumacs are on the verge of popping.
    first sunflower at our house opened up over the weekend.
    seem to be a lot of options for the bees right now.

    dandelion exploded in our area over the past few days. 80524

    some fruits are starting to go too. our crabapple and pear trees are "sitting on ready" and should pop in the next couple of days.

    90208-9+ (entire northern front range of Colorado) )
    Yellow sweet blossom clover, 6/14-21

    The state plants it to stabilize soil after new roadwork... a 2-3' bushy plant covered with yellow (& sometimes white) 2-4" flower stalks- commonly referred to as "clover". The local stuff is just kicking in, while further north (& lower elevation) it is booming.

    •name of the plant
    •any comment you add gets added to the database so give detailed info about what was going on, if it was the end of the bloom just add that to the comments

    First noticed bees bringing in pollen today (1/16/2015)
    From charts I have compared pollen to, I believe this is from the elms in town.

    80108, 4/14: some Crab Apple trees, down the hill, in full bloom. & My little plum trees. 4/16-18 (?) - wham, snow, low 30's - possible bloom killer, we'll see. I got one nice bed - ~200 sq. ft. - of "Honey Bee" flower mix planted just ahead of the storm.
