Yes mine are straight on it when it comes up. Not here yet. Bees are collecting bluebell pollen hereBees are collecting pollen now from Ribwort plantain in our meadow. Was quite surprised when I first saw this, but they love it. My bees lower down the valley are on the bluebells, sheets of them in the woods, a beautiful sight
Good luck thorn new apiary sites are always exciting.My garden bees are on the hawthorn, the forget-me-nots, the berberis and the Spanish bluebells. I've just set up two new apiaries, one on an allotment and one on a farm beside a wood full of native bluebells and with hawthorn and bramble hedges. I'm hoping for great things from both.
Wet coldish spring, the perennials will benefit in the summer .Sycamore is well out but it’s raining for at least the next ten days.
Hawthorn on the cusp but it’s staying cold
Every spring I’m full of hope. Every spring the weather gives my bees a kicking. I’m running out of springs
