Ok the bees are not on the lavender as I had posted before, or on anything else right now. They are on this bush/tree which is all over the 20 acres of land around the hive.

Anyone know what this is.

Annette, I could be dead wrong but it sure looks like ligustrum. The wild variety we call privet, it smells wonderful but the blooms last 1-2 weeks.

That looks like New Jersey Tea. A summer blooming lilac.

Edit: Nope I'm wrong. I just looked up what Privet was and the flowers match up perfectly.

In Ms, when the privet blooms the air smells absolutely wonderful!!! The ligustrums at my house which are huge and towering smell wonderful! To my wife and I.

The honey from Privet Hedge is stiffer than most other honey's, doesn't want to turn loose if the comb
in extracting, makes good comb honey, is light colored.

Hmmm....looks very similar to Viburnum.

Well the flower looks similar,but the leaves are definitely not the same. These leaves are more shiny and hard.
