Sorry for your weather, Oliver and your drought Don. Last year and so far this year we have had above average rain fall.
Right in front of my bee yard is a group of Laurel Cherry trees, just as they were getting in to full bloom a couple of weeks ago it rained for 3 or 4 days and had a freeze. Bees didn't touch them this year.
May the rest of your year be better fellows, good luck.
