Knotgrass weed if that helps

I was doing some fencing today and suddenly realised I was hearing bees hum. Looked up at the trees - nothing

Then realised i was standing in a big patch of knotgrass in flower and the bees were loving it

Checked one of my local sites yesterday and the gums were in flower, bees were out in full force.

Happy day's.  Yellow gum.
That will fix your abundance of pollen problem.

Still plenty of pollen coming in, such a mixture of flora in the area. I also have hives down on the Mornington Peninsular which I checked yesterday, compared to last year they're doing very poor.
