I'm new at this, so I hope I'm giving you the right information and sending it to the right place.

Based on the information you requested, I’m going to go in the same order:
1) Bob Donovan – Birch Meadows Apiary
2) 03833 (Brentwood, New Hampshire – SE NH)
3) My Observation Date March 28th
4) Plant: Maples
5) “Confidence Statement”: I have been sitting by my beehive every day for at least an hour or two a day for the last week (My first wintered hive) and didn’t notice any bloomage and not a single bee carrying in pollen. However, on the 28th of March, that morning, at 10 AM, I walked out to the hive and the bees were hauling in pollen like crazy! I couldn’t figure out where it was coming from, but in my observations, I noticed the Maples were starting to bloom.

NOTE: The zip code 03833 comes up in most directories at Exeter, NH. However, whereas Brentwood does not have a Post Office, we share Exeter’s Zip Code. Brentwood IS NOT a part of Exeter, we are our own town. However, we do share their zip-code.

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact me at: [email protected]

A few golden rod already in bloom here in Kennebunk 04043 and also saw some in Biddeford 04005. I haven't seen any purple loosestrife in bloom yet on Rte 111 where I usually see it.

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
