The first time since I've had bees I see some flowers on some of the ironbarks, and we could extract 10 frames today. That is terrific for this grey country here. I went through Kilmore and much of Victoria last week and it is sparkling green as an emerald all over, but in North Queensland the grass has gone far beyond dry yellow, brown, and is now pale grey. If we have another big wet, this might be it for another year or so! Never know-the exciting part of beekeeping here is its randomness.
