    Enjoying ours too! I am ashamed to admit I never noticed these trees until this year, studying the list of forage for bees in my areas - this is a major source for Wisconsin bees, and I never knew it existed! And its everywhere - beekeeping sure is educational.

    Love to just sit under a honey locust and listen to them.

    It is easy to miss as it doesn't always bloom. This is the first time it has bloomed around here since Hurricane Irene.

    Our Locust finally bloomed alot a week behind those only 10 miles away. I figure it might be because I am at a higher elevation.
    But I have not seen any bees on it.

    Ours are still hanging on in central Wisc, but the endless rain is taking its toll. Hope it blows over one day and we get our next batch of blooms, wildflowers I think?

    Our locust just starting to bloom here last 2 days. Unfortunately we are getting pounded with rain tonight. Hope it doesn't completely ruin the bloom this year. Last year was completely washed out with a week of rain.
