I have observed that honeyflows often happen when the weather is quite humid and warm. It appears that warm nights and high humidity are what is needed.
It appears also that "frontal passage" with cooler nights usually cuts the honeyflow off ( and the bees get ornery ! ).
Are there notable exceptions when a particular plant ignores this "rule of thumb" ?
Obviously, we do not have warm nights and high humidity during the maple bloom, but I don't know many people who have made any maple blossom honey either.

Then there is no honey in Maine. We get 80s-90s day and it drops back to the 50s (low to upper) at night in the hottest days of summer. High humidity is not a problem - we have enough usually to float a boat on :)
