Not sure what's blooming here in Birmingham, but I've got a little nectar being brought in and bright yellow and orange pollen. And they've started making drones.

Daffodils blooming in North Alabama. Do bees get nectar from them?  They look a little long for them to get to the nectar.

Eastern NC dandelion, henbit, hazel, sugar maples, fruit trees including blueberries all starting to flower. Hives stacked with bees and brood drones already capped. Early this year!

I spotted maples blooming with others still have last years leaves on them. A couple oaks are in bloom along with wax myrtles just starting to bud. My hives are bringing in something, not sure of what but there is that wonderful smell of curing honey around the hives right now. Lots of yellow pollen on the truck every day.

I jealous.  The only thing around here that is blooming is a few small patches of chickweed.

Yep, that's oxalis.  Beautiful mound of it!  Contains oxalic acid -- duh!, that's why the name.  Has nice flowers.  Gets better every year.  I like the purple oxalis a lot.

Yesterday the bees were working my bird feeder, today the maple tree in my front yard. This may not be so good, it's mighty early up here.

Redbuds and Bradford pears blew up yesterday.
Suppose to be a hard freeze tonight so that will be the end of them. Been a wild weather roller coster here this spring, high in the 80's one day then the next it's high in the 40's
