within a couple years of observation you can pretty well time blooming events. Of course variation in rainfall and temperatures will sway dates and durations. Temps are particular important in spring and rainfall particular important in summer for duration and quality.

thanks for the link, but it broke my heart when I did the 28 day forecast, and it said I would have a 40 degree day the last day of March:)

I have seen my bees bringing in pollen since early February. I have not been able to find out what I might be. According to the link the predominant pollens today are Elm Juniper and Poplar. I suspected Elm and was wondering about Poplar. It also shows today is the highest it has reached on the scale so far. It is 8.3 It was over half way on the scale on February 11th but has wavered back below the line regularly.

Very helpful source for tracking what is producing pollen and when. thank you.
