We are getting much needed, solid rain here. No wind and the rain is not too heavy. Only minor hail - I do hope that hail will stay away. Other areas had massive damage with sheds lost and crops damaged - the Peach harvest is about to start.
The Pecan's are just starting to flower. I have all of my nuc's within flying distance of a few acres of Pecans. Excellent for a pollen boost.

19. 10. 18 - the Jaboticabas are out again - they do flower profously for a couple of days a few times a year, generally after good rain, Busy work them really well.

Yes, Jacarandas are flowering in Maleny - a little too cool here for them to do well in the valley.
The Jabodicabas are flowering here a few times a year and the bees love them.
I have a Brazilian Cherry near my office and it is buzzing early in the morning. Looks like bees getting lots of pollen.

8. Novv 2o18 - Brushbox are budding heavily near Tuchekoy. This year they have very short buds - an indication of a heavy flow coming on.
Did you know that Brushbox can flower multiple times in the same year? I have heard of them flowering up to six times.
weather conditions need to be just right - hot, humid weather with some rain. We may in for it this year.
We had the hot and humit part and they say we are getting some rain.
The Clover would love a shower or two.
In any case, the bees are doing very well right now.

18. 11.18 - Buckinhamias are just out. https://www.google.com.au/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&ved=&url=https%3A%2F%2Fsteemit.com%2Fbuckinghamia%2F%40ctrl-alt-nwo%2Fbuckinghamia-the-ivory-curl-flower&psig=AOvVaw2hdG05XQGRILWKd7ffcS0t&ust=1542575690588126

We had some excellent rain ( 34mm) which will help the White Clover and of course the Brush Box.

Very mild today for November

What is NOT flowering?
I hear that the Blue Gum is still flowering in some areas. Of course the Ironbark keeps giving and the BrushBox is having a good year.
Jacarandas are still out. Same with the Tipuana Tipu.

Noticed today that the Angohora are budding and also the Lemon Myrtle.

The flow seems to continue.
Need some clear sunny days ( with good rain in the  late afternoon:))

18. 12. 2018 - Angophoras are out - https://www.google.com.au/search?q=angophoras+bees&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=DtlFJASd8_-9nM%253A%252Cx1txWgwUZC7fOM%252C_&usg=AI4_-kTZr7nE7yGrgrU9_qlzNMH7Ur1P_g&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwi5o57j2KffAhWZfH0KHQGoCGIQ9QEwEXoECAEQCg#imgrc=DtlFJASd8_-9nM:
It  is still raining here. I bet the BrushBox will flower again after this.
As a shallow rooted tree it needs this rain to perform well.
Waiting for the sun as I need to take honey off.

24. 12.18 - The Lemon Myrtle is just coming out.
There are not that many trees around here but the honey seems to pick-up a slight, pleasant tang.

26. 12.18 - Swamp Mahogany is out in places. Red Stringybark too.
Along the roads in Maleny Flatweed is prolific - great for some pollen.
The temperatures and soil moisture here is perfect for bees to make the best of it all.

I am in the Kyogle area of NSW. I have Broadleaf privet nearby flowering like I have never seen before. Bees bringing in lots of nectar, lite and sweet. Also I have a paddock of Narok Setaria in full flower. The paddock is full of bees in the early morning, presumably for pollen. I have not seen bees forage on this before. Regards Russ.
