I traveled up the A286 between Haslemere and Milford today and saw a field of rape that was bright yellow last Tuesday is now devoid of any petals. I'd better keep an eye on the field my bees are on.............
 
Snap! I got such a shock yesterday. Visited my bees on Wednesday. The surrounding fields were blindingly yellow. Yesterday afternoon I couldn't believe it. Straggles of yellow and the field had reverted to green. I'd had a bit of a "feeling" so went prepared and brought a couple of supers home. Mightily impressed with the "apiarist" warming cabinet - it really kept things cozy till I got dinner out of the way then cranked up the extractor. So far so good. Great extraction and water content sitting below 18%. Today's going to be busy!

Thanks for the tip, Neil. I'd better get down there with the extractor.

I haven't seen the ones at Losely Eric but I was stunned that the ones at Brook had turned so quickly.
 
Similar here in SE Worcestershire. Hawthorn, horse chestnut and last of apple still giving a good flow though.
