No, nothing beginning to bloom here.   :laugh:
It won't be long before the Silver Maples begin blooming.  The buds are really swelling. Last year the Silver Maple buds opened on 2/15 and Witch Hazel on 2/19.
Here is a picture of my P. Willow buds.



This is a picture of native Currant buds.



This is a picture of a couple of colonies taking orientation and cleansing flights today.




And the heated bird bath.




P. Willow again.

Witch Hazel is blooming along our creek and bees are bringing in pale yellow pollen. Wow!  :)

Anything blooming down south?  We haven't had anything yet!!!  Elms, Silver Maples, Witch hazel should pop any day down.  In a typical year, they would already be done blooming.

Yellow bells, crocus, red maple, dead nettle, henbit, and a few unknowns here in Piedmont N.C.

66061: Willow Salix caprea buds are starting to show color.  No others signs of blooms yet.
I think I actually saw the bees bringing in resin yesterday.  Corbicula contained a small, dark substance.  I observed this inside on top of the frames.

Willows, Maples, and peach trees have buds on them ! The temp today 48F and the temps for the next 5 days in the 50's and low 60F's . I'm glad my bees were not flying the last three days !!! With our 60F MPH and 70 MPH winds my bees would be in other States :o I don't remember having as much rain, wind, and MUD in Feb. and March like we are having this year??? In my area all the Creeks and Rivers have been and Are out of their banks??? Jack

66061:



 
These pictures were taken on 3/14/19.  The willow is showing color and the witchhazel is starting to bloom.  Silver Maples are also blooming.  Spring has finally started here!
Like Jack,  I have never seen mud like this in my life!  Walking in the backyard resembles walking through a feed lot after a heavy rain. 
The grass is starting to green up, what is left of it.  This year I am throwing White Dutch Clover down in the back yard to fill in the grass that died from last summer's drought.

In North Lawrence, KS, Apricot blooms are 1-2 days away from blooming.  Plums are about 3-4 days away from blooming.  Both are showing color.

Hi Folks, crocuses are blooming and Forsythia will pop as soon as we get a warm day.  They stopped taking my pollen, so they are getting it from somewhere.

Les, good to hear from you!  Our Forsythia are just beginning to bloom too, and we are a lot farther south.
I took this picture yesterday 4/5/19.


This is my Salix caprea, a member of the willow family. 
The bloom is about 12 days behind last year.

66061:  We've had dandelions for a couple of days.  Henbit for about 1 1/2 weeks.  Plum trees should be blooming today or very soon.

Magnolia blooming, just waiting for the rain to knock the blossoms off (it happens every year).
