In the last few days I have seen dangling hazel catkins, blackthorn, ivy, ground ivy, ivy leaved toadflax, mahonia, forsythia, dandelion, gorse, comfrey, blackberry, brassica (possibly rape), marigold, groundsel, speedwell and daisies.  I can’t remember there ever having been so many species in flower at the turn of the year.  What’s in flower near YOU?

I have been keeping bees since 1978 and currently have about a dozen hives. I am a member of the BBKA where for many years I represented Dorset at the Annual Delegates' Meeting. I am the co-author (with Dave MacFawn of of S. Carolina) of "Getting the Best from Your Bees" and am working on a book of my own poems : "Bee People".

  1. Today I saw ornamental heathers, cyclamens (is that spelt right?) and primulae. I walked in a wood full of box trees and the scent was tremendous. I could see buds but not flowers.
