    plum
    forsythia
    a few redbuds in the valley

    like dar mentioned in another thread these are a few weeks earlier than normal. it appears the warm spell we had last month has kickstarted some of the blooms. not good if we get another hard freeze, but the outlook is for continued mild weather.

    Who cares about flower blooms. I have walking drones and it isn't even MArch. <GG>

    Cherry Laurel: Lots of native pollinators using it, a few honeybees

    3/18/17 Peach: Very surprised to see the blooms open up Friday considering we had temps of 26 Wed morning and 22 Thurs morning. The blooms are burned from the cold but opening. Honeybees were working them.

    3/19/17 Holly, several species: Just barely starting. I almost didn't notice the blooms. Holly is a highly favored honeybee bloom here.

    you should be in the entering the peak of your main spring flow, (and swarm season). it starts tapering off after the tulip poplars finish.

    i'm predicting we'll start transitioning to summer dearth a little earlier than normal this year, most likely at around early to mid june depending on the rains.

    Blackberries are a month away from blooming here.

    Albertville AL
    35950

    Starting the week of 3/26
    Yoshino Cherry trees blooming. An apparent favorite of the bees. They cover them up and you can hear the trees "buzzing" from several yards away. I'd say full bloom peak was within the last 2 days.

    Dogwoods full bloom same as above

    Hairy Vetch starting up good as of Thursday 3/30

    Something producing sage green pollen. Still don't know the source. That started mid week, 3/29

    Saw my first white clover blooms today. 4/1 Isolated warm spot. Most of it is a ways off from blooming.

    Another of the bees favorites, Holly just starting today, 4/1. That's a big bloom for me. There are 1000's of feet of 20' tall Holly hedges within flying distance of my hives. I don't know the cultivar.

    I'd nearly call the beginning of the main flow as of today but until I see more white clover, I'll hold off a little longer. Things are about to burst wide open here.

    Dogwood - all fully developed blooms.
    Sassafras - looks like fully bloomed out.
    Lilac - half of the buds are bloomed out.
    Wild Honeysuckle - one bloom each on 2 large shrubs.
    Apple and Cherry - still budding and blooming, bees are going crazy for them.
    Tulip Poplar - budding, bracts opened some days ago.

    first tulip poplar bloom seen today, which for me signals the start of our main spring nectar flow.

    Blackberry: A week or so early.
    Privet: I've never seen it bloom this early. It is typically the last thing that blooms during our flow.
