Common Ash

The girls needed pollen, the tree is humming with them.

Hardenbergia violacea (Happy wanderer) nectar source not as attractive as the iron bark that?s still going but pretty

Is it a on or off year for yellow box in Victoria?
My bees are in Montmorency, Melbourne and it mainly seems to be Yellow box in the area.
Of course being the suburbs you never know exactly what they are getting..
Or at least I don't.

Cheers

Yellow Box Eucalyptus melliodora

The smell of ?honey? is heavy in the air around this young tree and the bees are working it hard but I couldn?t get high enough to show how busy it was

The records I have for what I planted state River Cooba but I don?t think it actually is. It may have been Willow Wattle but anyway it?s flowering

With Yellow Box flowering my understanding is the girls need a source of Pollen

The native Pigface (ice-plant) Carpobrotus glaucescens just might have this covered...

The bees flying off this were just little golden balls of fluff bumping around

I think Broad leaved peppermint are the ones flowering at Strathbogie now. Also Woolly Tea-tree Leptospermum lanigerum is flowering in the same area
