Our elderberries are blooming too.  We've also got the magnolias going, but they don't produce a huge flow, as big as their flowers are.

I need to get some St. John's Wort.  I hear it's great in salves. 
I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led.  And through the air, I am she that walks unseen.

Oh the smell of dirty gym socks!  Goldenrod has been blooming since 9/2.  A walk past the hives this evening and the stench is powerful!
Heath Asters 9/17.
New England Asters 9/20.

Goldenrod is going to be the fall honey savior - dirty gym socks are a wonderful smell. Aster is also blooming, both wild yard aster and my smooth blue aster, and frogfruit, and maximillian and cutleaf sunflowers.  Ragweed is in real high bloom, and I am sure they are gathering it. Elm is rumored to be in bloom but mine isn't.

Two hard freezes in a row the last two nights.  That's pretty much the end of foraging except for asters and a few stray goldenrods.

I think my maples are blooming too.  I haven't been able to get up close and personal with any maple trees lately to double check, but the bees are bringing in what looks like real pollen to me, and not just bird seed dust.

Strong black locust flow this spring and looks like privet is coming on. My colonies are just building up from nucs and not strong enough to take full advantage of it.

66061:  Tulip Poplars are blooming now.  Last week was Black Locust. 



These pictures are of one of my Black Locust.  I planted 5 trees about 7 years ago.  This is the second year they have bloomed.

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:
