near Atlanta. I read on an Ga Extension Service publication that the Tulip Poplar flow ends in mid-May - and the next flow they had was in very late summer. Is there no nectar flow in the Atlanta/N. Georgia area now? I installed my bees two weeks ago and I don't want them to starve.

IF you are in N. Ga. I would think Sourwood would be next. You should keep feeding them at least until they draw out the foundation for what you intend for their brood nest to be, 1.5 or 2 story.

Hey Key, there is still a flow rolling. I have Blackberries blooming still and privet. I think we have a couple or 3 weeks left, especially with this rain that we have gotten!

Yes, I have a lot of blackberry vines on my land. Right now most of the blooms are gone and the berries are green. Thanks for the advice, I'm glad to know that something is blooming.

I got a little worried when I saw a worker toss a drone out today. Pretty funny seeing a little worker man handle big drone.

White lawn clover is also going gang-busters - much to the dismay of the perfect-lawn neighbors.
