Hope you got some of that rain last nite. 56mm down here and 20mm  a couple of days ago.
Things have really greened up from being brown.
The bees are loving Murraya but no Jaboticaba flowering down here. The Cassias are going well.

Hi Mark,
we had another 27 mm over night - a total just over 100mm so far all up.
Lovely rain - no real heavy showers and most has now sunk into the soil. The Mary is flowing again.
A few weeks and the Cobblers pegs and other weeds will provide some pollen and nectar.
I have 9 nuc's here I should check. I made them up about ten days ago and want to see if the queen is laying. I'm getting another few queens tomorrow - mostly to replace any failures. I think this will be it for me as far as nuc's is concerned for the season.
Hoping for some honey in a couple of weeks.
We fenced a new beeyard on Friday and I will be shifting a few singles there as soon as we get the stands up and the fencing finished. Great location - very close to the Maleny NP , close to water and easy, private access and excellent mobile phone reception. We maybe able to place a camera there. 15min from home!
