Holy cow!! Things are pollinating in America?!?

Actually, I have a pernicious weed here called chickweek that is about to bloom. I think it may be too chilly for the gals to get to it, though.

I cannot believe how many WI beeks are on here!! Welcome, oldwalt!

Can somebody tell me if bees get anything from bleep willows? I hear willows are a great first source, but is that weeping willow, bleep willow or other? We have the first 2 in the neighborhood.

I saw my girls bringing in yellow pollen. We also have chickweed right now. Is this chickweed or pollen being robbed from the dead hive nextdoor?

45103-- White clover, catnip, sage, salvia, agastache, conflower, squash, cukes, hostas...

I'm a newbee so not good at this. So I went through my garden to see what the honey bees like, and then did a hike in the woods to see what I could see. The main thing blooming that they are all over is white clover, Melilotus albus. I didn't even know that was clover until I looked it up.

In my gardens, the bees (and everything else) are all over the blooming catnip, Russian sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia), Hysop/Black Adder (Agastache), and the purple coneflowers. May Night Salvia (Salvia superba) is a bit spent, but bees still seem somewhat interested.

Probably doesn't count, but squash and cukes in my small veggie garden are blooming as well.

Hostas bloomed some weeks ago and the bees were on them. They are still blooming, but many blooms are now spent and I didn't see bees on the newer ones.

Tons of Queen Anne's Lace /wild carrot blooming right in front of the hive and not a single bee on it. They couldn't bee less interested in hydrangeas that are right behind the hive, either, or daisies, roses, or lots of other stuff. But I guess that's only news to me.

NE Ohio; Liatris (gayfeather) which the bees love more than just about anything. I think I would have more bees on my liatris than on a frame of honey left out! Purple coneflower which my bees like. Cleome (spiderflower) which they gravitate to when the liatris starts dying out. Teasel, which bees really like around here (especially bumblers).
