FloridaGardener:
It is time. 

About half of the bees returning to the hive are bringing in pollen.  Most is hi-vis orange...maybe ornamental cabbage?
A little is white. It's not the Sasanqua Camellias which are still in bloom - their pollen is yellow.

Brian MCquilkin:
Great to see that your bees are active. The bees in my neck of the woods will not have any flying das for another 8 weeks.

Beeboy01:
Got a white and orange colored pollen coming into my hives right now. The yellow probably is Spanish Needle but not sure about the white. Just noticed that some of the maples are starting to bud which is real early this year and could be the source of the white pollen. 

Bob Wilson:
It's crazy.
I always thought spring started in March/April around here, but after I started making bee notes last year, I realize maple trees will be blooming a week and a half from now. Being a beek has changed my whole seasonal outlook.

rast:
Southern Red Cedar is putting out yellow pollen here.
