Our fall flowers are in full swing, and I think we are getting a little bit of nectar coming in based on how happy the bees seem.  :thumbsup:

Observing the front entrances yesterday, the bees were finding nectar somewhere.  If the aroma from the hives smell like dirty gym socks, I will know if it's golden rod.  We had rain and hail on Sunday, so the goldenrod is probably producing some nectar now.

This is where I'm at today.  I see full pollen baskets, but it's hard to tell if it's maple pollen or chicken feed dust.  :-\

:D  Either one is possible.
My bees can be seen at the bird bath too.  I always take that as a good sign there are eggs in need of high moisture to hatch.

Maples are fully open and have been for maybe 2 weeks.  Today I was walking the dogs over at WCU and saw honey bees all over some ornamental cherries they planted last year after finishing some new dorms.  The tulip magnolias are about to start too.

I think spring is here. On my drive yesterday, I think I saw a dozen different blooms. From dead nettle to peaches, to Pears and plums. Yellow bells and tulip magnolias, and a few I can't name.

We had our past two nights were lows in the 20s and 30s, so I was really worried about the blossoms, but it wasn't as bad as it could have been.  The tulip magnolias took a pretty bad hit, but the cherries and pears seem to have come through pretty well.

66409: 4/15/24  Here's one I never heard of before. My beekeeping friend lives just south of Topeka, KS. She witnessed her bees all over her blooming Pin Oak. They were collecting pollen. So, even though you won't find Pin Oaks on any nectar or pollen lists, they will work it.
Amur Maple and fruiting Cherries blooming too.
