    The elms have gone to seed. The domestic plums are finishing, the wild plum buds are swelling, the Redbuds flowers are opening and the pears are blooming.

    The Dewberries have been blooming for a couple of weeks. The Blackberries are beginning to open. Still no Persimmon or Catalpa.

    Bee Balm blooming, but not a Honeybee in sight. 013 (800x600).jpg

    Golden Rod buds are beginning to swell.

    We have had plenty of rain in the month of August. Maybe the Fall flow will be good.

    Newton county. Warm clear day. Bees are bringing in pale yellow pollen. What can be blooming in January?

    maybe Ozark witch hazel, it blooms in Jan and Feb. Yellow flower and yellowish pollen. Smells nice too.

    Take a look at the photos at the bottom of the page I linked so you know what to look for. They are easy to miss.

    Mystery solved. Walked the creek and some of the witch hazel in full sun is blooming and honey bees and wild pollinators are working it. The ones in shade are just now putting buds out. That can end badly with a sudden cold snap.

    You'd think that would be the case but those flowers close up on themselves and pop right out when the cold snap ends. Neat tree.
    Glad you found them.
    Notice any sweet smell in the air?

    The smell of witch hazel is one of those springtime occurances that make me feel that it won't be long now. Jonquils, redbuds, dogwoods, etc... all give me the same feeling.

    Thanks for the link, Clyde. I have noticed that smell before, I just didn't know what it was. It reminds me of cinnamon candy.
    Maple are also blooming.
