:nature-smiley-014: I was at the fruit farm where i have my bees this morn and noticed they have planted sunflowers on one patch , not that big but still a fair few and noticed bees over them like a rash...have put in a word to see if they would expand on this years patch size, anyone else have these valuable yellow stunners near them ?...Would be good to see more sunflowers than O.S.R ...

Loads over here:drool5: Unfortunately none within range this year - perhaps next year.

Loads here every year, I mean actually here within 2km or there were, they are finished now for this year BUT unfortunately relatively little bee activity on them this year due to no proper rainfall for months and consequently poor flow.
