Suddenly it’s dandelion wine time!  This used always to occur around St George’s Day (23rd April). Last year it was about 8th April.  I get the feeling that there may be a link between the time of dandelions and the first swarms.  Maybe it is the same weather/climate/radiation stimulus or maybe it is the sudden abundance of pollen and nectar. Maybe it’s coincidence.
