Flowers please
« on: March 27, 2020, 01:30:02 am »
Someone should post some encouraging pictures of colourful spring flowers and fresh pollen dust covered bees please .....
I am anxious to get my 2020 bee season started but at the moment have to admit that am feeling a little depressed. 
Old Man Winter will not be releasing his firm grasp here until beyond next Friday, well into April. :(

At least you can take solace in how you are helping those of us that are into spring when you monitor and answer questions while waiting.  I appreciate what you offer . . .

I have been around bees a long time, since birth.  I am a hobbyist so my answers often reflect this fact.  I concentrate on genetics, raise my own queens by wet graft, nicot, with natural or II breeding.  I do not sell queens, I will give queens  for free but no shipping.

Tulips, tulip tree, red bud tree full of bees in background.  I can hear the excited bees in the red bud tree.

HP, very soon for you to see, hear the same.  Hang in there.  Soon, very soon: flowers everywhere you look.

Not sure what these are. Anyone? - Nock

According to an app I have on my phone these are viola arvensis or european field pansies.

Incase anyone is interested, this app is called GardenAnswers, you just take a picture of the flower and they give you the closest information on what it might be. I've had good luck with it
