For _years_ I've been wanting to get on our 3rd floor porch and get some photos of honeybees foraging on the maple flowers. This was on Saturday, and I could almost see the flowers blooming.

Nice, so that is the source of the bright yellow before the dandys. Could you get a shot of the bees on the flower with the pale green pollen for me too. So I know what kind it is?

Where I am, once Callery Pear starts blooming, so does Norway maple. Red Maple is just ending as are other early trees.
I've seen Red Maple, Willow, and Oak finishing up in the park recently.

I've finally figured out how to use the GDD calculator at the weather channel site.

I even have a bead on Crocuses, etc. . :)

Nice pics.

My maples are already dropping whirly's all over the yard. We had several warm days when they were blooming and they stored quite a bit of nectar from them. One have I checked had 2 deep frames of nice white capped maple honey about a month ago.
