Welcome Back Sour Kraut long time no post. Yes it's starting to look like an early spring. The flowers are just starting to appear, I haven't seen any pollen yet.
Please stay in touch

Yeah, been TOO long.

Had 4 colonies going into winter in 2013, lost all four due to extreme cold and no spring

That winter took its toll on feral colonies too, no swarm calls in 2014 at all.

But things improved last year, and hoping for a good 2016.

Rev.  Sorry to hear that, it has been a rough winter.  I've lost eleven hives.
