    Well I better correct my statement from this morning. After visiting some of my yards today (62*F) and finding some pollen coming in.
    Looks like the grey alders have stated blooming (see picture), also some light yellow pollen in 2 yards (no pics) from either witch hazel or maple or both. I couldn't track it down because of snow in the woods and mud in the fields. If alders are blooming, real maple bloom can't be far behind and certainly only 10 days of so out.

    Blackberries are beginning to form buds. Not even a leaf on the Persimmons. Wild Plums are in full bloom as the Redbuds finish.

    Strange year!

    I smelled that smell yesterday evening, but I don't see any Goldenrod blooming on my place as of yet. The flower buds have formed but haven't opened yet. They must be blooming nearby.

    I was afraid the GR was going to be a bust due to lack of rain, but we got about an inch yesterday. The bees are already getting busy.
    Let the good times roll.

    Elms are blooming.

    We have had 13" of rain since Wednesday. It looks like we will have plenty of ground moisture going into Spring.

    Plums and peaches. Redbuds are beginning to show, but not quite open.

    Tim, I would have happily shared. I had a 5 gallon bucket to catch the rain. I lost the exact count after it filled and I didn't realize it.

    The Dewberries have been blooming for about two weeks. Blackberries are beginning. Privet is not far behind.

    I don't know what mine are foraging on and i don't much care ... all I know is my hives are blowin' up and I hope those frames I ordered from Dadant get here before they reach critical mass . Well , it isn't really that bad , but I did add a medium super - and in one case , a new split , I added a deep - to all hives last week , and will be monitoring for the need for more . I have split all 3 hives that survived the winter and all are doing well so far . I'll be checking for queen cells in the new (Mother's Day , 5/13) splits tomorrow or Friday (got a Dr appt at the VA Thursday) and will make a couple or four nucs if things are right . I wasn't expecting getting any honey this year since I'm expanding the apiary , but this may be that year that I get it all with a cherry on top . The icing on this cake is that my garden is blowin' up too . When it rains ...

    I was really worried when that late hard freeze came about the time the Redbuds were peaking, but it has come back strong.

    I put a fourth medium on one hive today and most have three. They probably won't fill the last ones, but I didn't want them to think they were running out of room. It may not seem like much to some, but around here I think it is. It is for me anyway.

    Good luck for the next couple of weeks.

    Dewberries are in full bloom, Blackberries are starting to open. The flower buds on the Privet and Persimmon are showing. Clover of various types are scattered about.
    Very large populations in most hives.

    Dewberries are finished. Blackberries are about to peak. I can see the blooms on the Persimmons, they are still green, though. The Privet is beginning to open, although I wish the Privet and Persimmons would hold off for about a week as we have so many Blackberries.

    Bees are packing it in. The rain has been plentiful, fortunately mostly at night giving the bees a chance to forage in the afternoon.

    Privet is done, waiting for Sumac. White clover is still blooming.

    31 August 2019 Saw Goldenrod blooms for the first time. I've had a faint whiff in the hives, but no visual proof...

    I saw some GR blooming near the Kerr Lock and Dam, but none here. The Ironweed is blooming well, though. The bees are just beginning to ramp up the flying, but no smell yet.
