What's flowering in your neck of the woods? Victoria

Hey Folks, what's flowering, or due to flower, in your neck of the woods? I was down Mornington Peninsula today and the coastal tea tree is going off!

Tea Tree has been flowering in Barwon Heads for a couple of weeks now.  And very spectacular too, but I didn't get the impression that the bees were working it much during the first week or so. Due to inspect in the next couple of days, so hoping for some filled frames.

We have lots of Boronia, bottlebrush, grevillias, isopogon, some teatree and turpinitnes out at present. Of course the gardens are full of flowers as well.
Cheers

  How would one label the honey ?   We have in Gippsland Ti-tree, Hawthorn, Apple, pink flowering gum, camelias, lavendar, bottle-brushes and what else. A test to pick out the dominant nectar !!.

mixed floral honey same as the big C does then put up the price to cover the wide range of flavours you are providing in one jar
