I took the camera outside this afternoon looking for honeybees and i found lots all over the Winter Jasmine! which has been blooming about 3 weeks early this year. i also found them on my rosemary! we don't have hives ,yet, so they must be from the neighbors 1 1\2 mile down the road! it was so nice to hear and see them. ican hardly wait to get ours (hives) up this spring and get bees!

yellow jasmine which is an introduced species starts blooming in the very southeastern portion of Texas just above Beaumont typically in late February or early March. some years it bloom quite profusely and sometime very little. the pollen of yellow jasmine makes the bees there appear drunk from the time it begins to blooming to just a bit afterwards.

ps... I don't really know if winter jasmine might do the same thing or not???
