    Ahh, finally. Popular finally bloomed in my neck of the woods. It has been in bloom for a few days now just below the escarpment. Anticipating maple and Acute willow right smartly

    Well, the warm weather has finally came, but still having frequent rains to get any work done!!

    Dandilions are making a bolder apperance, but not much nectar is being stored as of yet. Sure hope the weather allows better flight this comming week or I am going to have to make a heavey feeding round!

    Saskatoons, wild plums, and choke cherries all made their apperance mid of last week. Bees working all of them.

    Something interesting to see was the Acute willow came back right on with a stronge pollen flow Friday. I was sure that is was finnished off by the last cold snap.
    Seems Mother nature has just held a week - weekand a half delay on everything up here.


    And for those who are interested, the frogs sang their third time yesterday, and the oak trees finally came out into bud.
    Perhaps the weather will settle down a bit now,

    And now the poplar, or trembling aspen.

    Boy we are getting a good wave of weather. Been 20 degrees for the last few days, the bees are active, and I am hoping for a good season this year!

    What is needed:

    •zip code, city or county
    •date when the plant first bloomed
    •name of the plant
    •comments - example: if it was the end of the bloom just add that to the comments
    Regards, Barry
