    The holly on the campus here ate the University of North Carolina is starting to bloom, and I find bees on every bush/tree I look at.

    Zip - 27599
    Elevation - around 500 I think
    Date - 03-23-2007

    It probably helps that its 80 and sunny right now.

    Default Sourwood buds at last

    I did a tour of the area around me yesterday and finally found what I was looking for: the sourwood trees are getting ready to open up their blooms. I was afraid the Easter freeze had killed the buds, the way it did for the tulip poplars. I think it has a little but only to a very limited extent.

    Estimated first sourwood bloom date for southern NC mountains -- June 25-30

I have been told hostas had started coming up! This is crazy.

    Noticed a few red maples in bloom today. May be another week before they really get going cause it's supposed to turn back cold again.

    Blueberries-earliest of the plants to have blooms open enough for carpenter bees to get on.

    Anybody in eastern NC seeing an end to the summer dearth? I'm see a teeny bit of aster, some Japanese Knotweed, titi has some blooms still, and of course the crape myrtles for pollen. Nothing else that is really noticeable. But my bees are bringing in nectar from somewhere. I know they were working the field peas, but they've about played out. Anybody seeing any goldenrod yet?

    I am in SE NC. I have not seen a drop of honey from a fall bloom of any sort in 7+ years??? Is a golden rod bloom good only once every ten years?

    In the north central part of North Carolina on the Virginia state line. Smartweed in full bloom, golden rod here and there, seen bees working morning glorys, and oddly enough bees are working pigweed. Not sure if their getting pollen or nectar or both from the pigweed but sure is nice to see that plant serve a purpose for me for a change. Hard to keep it out of the pastures and choking out the grass.

    Forgot to add that I do not feed at all and all hives are full of honey to the point of backfilling the broodnest.
