 Some kind of trees, not sure what kind, but the girls are coming in loaded with light grey/yellow pollen. Dandelions, pear is blooming, some peach, hyacinth.

Forgive me for being in the north where the last of the snow piles melted a few days ago but so far I have hyacinth coming up but not blooming yet. Silver maples are starting to bloom however.

I plant turnips as a  Fall garden cover crop. The over wintered turnips grow to about 3 feet tall with a very fragrant flower. They bloom very early and the bees love them.
