There's a little bit flowering around. Are you looking for big patches to put hives on or just wondering if it's the time of year for it?

It's a little early for Pattersons Curse (riverina bluebell) give it a few weeks till it warms up a bit. :)

People of a common ancestry and culture separated by a language!  Amazing!  Your descriptors are colorful to say the least!  I wish it weren't so far!  I would sure like to come and visit.

  Well, I've seen plenty of Patterson's Curse around Penrith and the Nepean River valley open spaces, but thats probably too far for you

   Travelled to Kerang last weekend. Plenty along the roadside between Bendigo and Kerang.

Maximum recommended is a 19% blend - but if you're not a regular eater of honey you can eat it straight - I found a patch along the Hume too!

I've never seen it up here in the hills. The area north of the divide seems the go.
