I'm seeing gorse pollen by the kilo.
Just about everything is in bloom- except the hawthorn.
By some premonition I planted a hedge three years ago ,before these pesky insects took over my very existence.
It would be great if its now mature enough to flower this year.
Gorse flowers 12 months of the year, Hawthorn broke out in flower yesterday here but the bees very rarely get to use it no matter what the weather.
What I have noticed this year is that the bees are not touching the Dandelion which is odd. But its that kind of year. My bees make almost all of their crop in May for the year, but I have no idea what will be left by then, almost everything is done flowering. Just the big trees and aphids left to come.
