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. Smiley

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.

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.
