Filberts have started "blooming". They actually produce catkins, not flowers, but the bees are still getting pollen off them - between rain showers.

late Jan/early Feb, southwest Oregon(near Calif border)--Still freezing or raining often BUT On nice days bees come out and find yellow pollen. Alder catkins have yellow pollen and bay-laurel trees blooming a month or so early in 2015. Some random garden flowers like violas and johnny jump ups(that didn't freeze this year) are out. MUCH warmer winter than 2014!

Mine are starving. I am putting over 100 lbs. of sugar to my hives and yesterday it looked like somebody had pressure washed the feeders. There was not even a frame of open nectar. I am into my last 50 lb. of surplus sugar and I am concerned that I am spread too thin (with a bad knee).

Here's a photo from right behind my hives. This is at the 97123 location @1200ft. Not quite in bloom yet. Sorry for the crappy photo. The camera didn't want to focus on the bud.

Down in the valley (97124 @ 150ft) they are blooming. As soon as I get back down there I'll see if I can get a pict.

What a goofy weather year. Had a 70 degree day (latest high temp date day over 65 on record here). Trees and flowers that usually go early are all just starting to bloom-and other plants are on schedule.
I have Gravenstien, Liberty, King and other full size apples that have been in bloom for a couple of days and just now got the first crab apples.
Wild plum, early plum and Italian plum (one of the latest) all in bloom.
Wild cherries, choke cherries, Bing, Anne, Tartan.
Asian pear and Peaches
A large patch of Vinca minor that usually blooms in February is blooming hard.
Vineleaf maple
Weather predicted to go back to 50’s and rain.
