We are getting a few light showers - that is all for now. It is very dry.
Always a bit sad to loose swarms. It is like a set-back for the honey too.

The nuc's are doing well and I have not been feeding them at all. never have to.

I have been checking my nuc's in a yard were I don't go every day.
I noticed a Leptospermum flowering.
It is quite a tree rather then a shrub. I'm wondering if it is Leptospermum flavecence?! also know as Wild May.
The timing would be about right.

Just noticed that the Tipuana Tipu ( the Pride of Bolivia) is flowering.

It has been very hot and very dry but these trees seem to do well under such conditions.
The Jacarandas are still flowering too.

I'm told that the Brush Box is coming out on the way to Maleny. Always worth keeping the eyes open for them.

13. 11 - the Buckinghamias are out  and doing well. Last year I noted them on the 18. 11. Maybe the dry is bringing out the flowers a little early?
This is a close relation to the Mac Nut. I wonder if it is safe to assume that the honey is a sgood?
It is used a street tree around here ( eg Landsborough)
