Are any of our more southern friends seeing black locust blooms yet. I remember from my last trip to Buds about this time of year that Black locust were in bloom as far as southern VA maybe?
They are blooming here by my work.

Those blooms cant get here soon enough. I love the smell. Call me crazy but I have four of these thorny buggers planted in my front yard.
We had poor blooms the last couple years ,but hoping for a good one this year.

Dandelion in full force and a few clovers starting to poke up and I think Apple will be starting soon
3 hives died in 1 year. I need to start with two hives.

Crimson clover getting started. That freeze did a number on our tulip poplar. I don?t think we will get that flow this time. Shame it?s a good one.

Still hoping on black locust here soon. Its always a gamble on rain when it blooms here.

Our Black gum trees are buzzing with bees. Gallberry is still attracting bees.

Jaanese privet is about all fizzled out. 
Bay magnolia is starting - and so are some of the saw palmetto! Looks like some of the palmetto isn't sending out fronds yet, perhaps that means there will be a phased, more sustained supply.

Well! Dandelions are everywhere. No honey bees, just bumblebees. The white lawn clover is being tended by hard working bumblebees, but no honey bees. The nandina (heavenly bamboo) is blooming, but only the bumblebees are there. Other than magnolia, i don't see anything blooming. Beats me what my hives are doing. Maybe practicing for a lazy 3 day weekend.

Cotton, noticed it today.

Back on  Aug 23 I sent a PM to Burley Bee telling him the golden rod was just beginning to bloom. I thought it would be in full bloom by now. It is not. It is blooming in some places and in others it is still looking like it is ready to start. I suppose it will be in full bloom here soon.

Should be a great flow this year here. We have had plenty of rain all summer.
