echinacea, bee balm, squash, melons, beans, sweetcorn, cukes, etc.

Iowa, zip 52214.  New England Aster, Arrow Leaved Aster, Heath Aster, and 2 other white asters - Small White Aster and Panicled Aster? (My book says "The small white asters are numerous, extremely variable, and may intergrade.  Many can be recognized with certainty only by technical characters not given here." :-D  Goldenrod is pretty much done here, with just a few holdouts left.

Here in Denver.. ground is frozen solid... not much snow.  It'll be March before anything resembles springtime.

The bees are bringing in pollen now.  Not sure of the source.  Did find the Skunk Cabbage to be in bloom.  Generally it's the first pollen of the season.

Saw a Dandelion bloom today.  If this were NE Florida, I know the Maples would be bright red with flowers right now.

Wow! I found some chickweed next to the snow today that looks like it's getting ready to bloom. Incredible!

I went to Outback steakhouse and the onions were bloomin'  :-D

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

You got that right. I noticed the maples coming out bright red about 5 days ago, mullberry is starting to bud (it's a strange fruit where the flower is internal and never exposed, no nectar or pollen for the girls -- but I am glad to see them breaking open).

I figure out the main pollen is coming from the Silver maples, now in bloom.

It was 61 degrees here in Eastern Kansas (near Kansas City) today.  The bees were bringing in a dull, light colored pollen.  I'm not sure what variety it is as I can't see anything blooming yet. 

The forcast for the next two days is highs in the 30's and lows in the mid 20's.  I sure hope it doesn't wipe out the pollen source.

They also use Citizen Scientists to track what is blooming.

Foothills of North Carolina the Poplar are in full bloom and the Mountains are only about 1.5 to 2 weeks away from Full Poplar Bloom!
