I am bringing in the New Year with another follow the bloom thread for the 2015 season. Hope all blooms come early ,produce heavily, and last for a good spell. Hats off to all beekeepers, new and not so new. :)
Thoughts of spring are upon many of us already as things way down south are starting already.Let the blooms begin.

Elmore (zone 7a) & Montgomery(zone 7b) Counties - henbit has been blooming for a week or so. Also yellow looking flowers out in the fields of both counties. Maybe wild turnip?

Montgomery - wood sorrel for about a week now.

Maple in bloom here. I have not seen it yet, friends have seen it. My observation hive is filling up with nectar and pollen, yea. They are even building new comb. the normal brood area is now filled in and with capped brood. Drone cells are being filled with honey.

It seems very early this year but my neighbors Cherry tree is blooming and the alders are putting out their pollen thingys.  On nice days my bees are very active bringing in loads of pollen.  I am concerned as this is easily a month early.  I still expect another hard freeze before winter is really over here.

Yellow bells with only one or two blooms for about a week or two now.
