I saw some buckeye blooming in the bottom of my woods. Loblolly pine trees have been releasing their pollen the last two or three days. I have just a very few dead leaves left on my beech trees. Usually when they are all off winter/real cold weather is gone.

Western WV - we have daffodils all over, a few Willow starting up.

Went out and mowed lawn today to find that we have dandelion showing through right now.

gary, i hope you've got some supers ready.  your hives may be a little weak from the splits but if clover is in now tulip poplar will be in in a few weeks then privet behind it.  i'm going to build equipment tomorrow since i won't be able to plant anything.

Thanks, I have tons of them. I have two big tulip poplars next to the hives about 200' of 8x10 privy and woods full of wild privy. I've got to check the poplars, they were starting to bud but the temp was 27 yesterday morning or the morning before.

gary, i thought i was the only one that called it sourgrass.  it's been in for about a week.  i've also got some trees that have bark like plum trees and white blooms that hang in clusters.  the bees work it but i'm not sure what it is.
