Same here in the central part of east Texas. very light production though of yellow pollen. Our dandelions are about to bust open and so are the Elm trees. Haven't found anything open on either of these yet; although looking through binoculars it appears the Elms are blooming up high; but down low where I can observe better they are swelled up fixing to bust open any day.

70F here today and checked a few colonies. have small portion of a couple of medium frames about as big as a fist in sealed brood (one side only of two frames) and about that much in eggs and larva. Bringing in a little nectar from some where (fresh stores in some cells) but don't know from where. Temperatures are supposed to run from lows of upper 40's to low 50's with highs in the upper 60's to lower 70's the next 10 days. This should really bring on the dadelions and Elm trees.

comment added: Will post bloom dates when I know for sure.
