Went down to the hives today. They were very active at the entrance with a rather large cloud of bees hovering out front. It was good to see young bees flying (nice and fuzzy instead of the older beat up ones) most of the afternoon. I was able to see some bringing in yellow pollen. Wasn't expecting that since I just started to see the grass.
Mine have light tan pollen today. Bright yellow/orange is dandelions, they often start to bloom here and there very early. Snowdrops are up, might be a few crocus up in protected spots, hellebore might still be in bloom. If it's out there, the bees will find it.
