In the KAnsas city, Kansas area, blackberries are starting to bloom.

Usually the end of the blackberry bloom is the end of the spring honey flow. However, yellow sweet clover is ALSO starting to bloom, (I THINK it is VERY early), so perhaps the usual summer dearth will not be as bad. We have 2 fairly wet years in a row.

We've had about 11" of rain this spring, this seems really early for the clover? I'm not a native, so other Kansans may know more.

What is needed:

•zip code, city or county
•date when the plant first bloomed
•name of the plant
•comments - example: if it was the end of the bloom just add that to the comments

There's a big magnolia blooming on the south side of Roosevelt Hall today on the ESU campus in Emporia. Maybe a week earlier than last year, and last year I thought everything was about 2 weeks earlier than normal. My bees are bringing in huge pollen loads, I'm guessing elm and willow.

Chinese Elms are getting close to bloom here in Sedg. Co. A few more days of warming weather should get some to bloom.

Dandelions will be a no-show until we get some rain which is badly needed. It's severely dry in my local area.

Picked up about three quarter inch of rain early yesterday. Dandelion bloom is still going good....hope the rain extends it to the max. A red oak tree is nearing bloom...couple of more days and bees will be raiding it. Black locus trees are just beginning to green up....it'll be awhile before they bloom yet.
