    Maple and pussy willow. Possibly some other willows too. Came home from a weekend away to see about 75% of bees coming back to my nucs in the backyard loaded with pollen.

    Bees bringing in yellow pollen. maple pollen is usually darker.
    Maybe a willow or poplar. Pussywillows are still a few days off up here.
    Cooler weather coming. Probably halt things for a while.

    My Nanking Cherries just started a couple days ago, but have kind of halted for a bit now. They were in full bloom 4/7 of last year, this year looks like it should beat it by about a week, but this little cool front might delay that a bit.
