Black locust and black cherry in bloom, but cool weather to set in the next couple days. :sad:

Lows in the 40's high in the sixties. Not too far from normal, but not as nice as we have been having the last week.

Bees were working on popcorn trees ( Chinese Tallow). Not a lot of activity at the hives but the trees were full of bees.

Bees on white clover.

I'm starting to see crape myrtles open here.  Saw bees on them 2 weeks ago in downtown Jax.  Odd enough there are a few stands of goldenrod with some blooms open too. A little bit of palmetto seems to be around still.

In Baker county, the commercial beeks pulled the supers off of their hives. They will probably remove them this week. Usually that means that everything is done until fall but the popcorn trees are in full bloom with lots of bees on them.

Lupine has been blooming for a while but I saw some Joe pie weed and milkweed with buds today.

I have a few milkweed flowers open but lots of buds on the rest of them. I also have a lot of clover in bloom.
