Drove to check hives today (Mississippi).  From Jackson metro to Attala County, Red maples barely showing.  Some green pollen coming in today (not sure what that?s from).

Maples are starting here in WNC.

West of lake city the primrose-willow was huge when I was out there yesterday. I will assume the next two nights will end that though. Speaking of that the last frost damaged the first round of blooms my pear trees, the last week has them full of blooms, my assumption is the same for them.

in central TX and our dandelions were blooming and the elm trees too in the beginning of Feb.  Bees were bringing in tons of pollen and upon inspection of my one hive I started with last spring, tons of capped brood.

Then the iceman cometh and froze everything last week.  Thawed out on Sat and the bee were flying again and I was surprised to see they were bringing in pollen.  Didn't see anything blooming near me, but I am pretty sure it was dandelion again.  On Sunday the dandelionos were blooming in my yard too and the elms and cedars are in flower again. 

Here's too a good spring.

The picture is a Osaka cherry with honey bees. Dandelion is blooming now, and red pollen is coming in from henbit.

Here in South Central Illinois we have had Henbit and Dead Nettle for a couple of weeks, they are almost done now. Maple has blossomed too. Now first week of April we have Bradford Pear and Dandelion. Red Bud is only a few days away.

Black Gum has been in full bloom for a week. Bees have been keeping the trees buzzing. Each tree seems to stay in bloom for about 4 days. They do not all come into bloom at the same time which is a good thing. Gallberry is just starting to bloom. Bees are ignoring it while the Black Gum is still blooming.
