    Bees were flying this AM but not after 2:00 PM as it had cooled off again. They were bringing in bright red pollen..I put out 5 gal of HFC syrup & set up a dry pollen sub. feeding station. All 5 hives are looking strong.

    Sounds good to me.

    What is the pollen off of?

    Has the red maples popped yet?

    Don't know where the red pollen is commimg from. The buds on the red maples are swollen & about to open. Should be soon.
