Map of What's Blooming
« on: March 01, 2008, 09:32:44 AM »
A member in another forum has put together a useful map of all things blooming.  Please be aware if you hit the Show All button your computer will slow to a crawl - but for specific blooms and dates this map is pretty cool!

Dave (and Jim) have been working on this for a long while.
I know they started collecting info a few years back.
As it ages, it should give truer and truer info.

It is good to give them proper recognition for a unique product like this.

As more people realize it exists, purhaps more people will contribute.
I am guilty for not helping the cause.... But now that I see some results I will.

Could this possibly be made into a sticky?  It really is a good resource for keeping track of our honeybee nectar and pollen sources.

Yes I've added it, I just decided to bump the thread. I think it's a great idea.

Great website!  Maybe it will help me figure out where my girls are getting the white pollen I see them bringing in.  I haven't seen anything blooming here yet except crocuses

Hi Folks,

This is my 4th spring posting data and I'm really beginning to see the benefit of being able to look back at previous years
when you make a post, be sure to put stuff in the comments field
It'll be very useful years from now

Hey All,

My first posting here on this site.  Calling from North Pender Island, British Columbia, Canada (Canada's west coast).

We are just in the middle of a massive broom and lupin blossom and are anxiously awaiting the blackberries.  Most of our trees are now in full bloom/leaf with thanks to our bees.

Brian, welcome to our forum.  Go to the greetings forum and officially tell us about yourself there, hee, hee.  I am 45 km northeast of Vancouver, we share pretty much the same weather, flows, etc.  Have that beautiful and most wonderful day, love our life we live.  Cindi

sorry folks

I had some other stuff running on the machine that was slowing it down
it should be back to normal now
the original intent was to be able to display the progress of warm weather in the spring and how it relates to the bloom dates you folks add. I've been messing with it some lately and I'm close to having it all working
keep posting data in there

Dave
