To my nose, it reeks like stinky socks. To most other people, too.

Does not concern the bee;
A clover, any time, to him
Is aristocracy.

The golden rain trees are finally in bloom now and I'm sure our goldenrod flow is not far behind. Last legitimate flows of the year for us!

2 sox, maybe you are catching the smell when it is almost ripened?  It doesn't smell like dirty socks once it is done.  I love goldenrod honey.
