Can't say that the farmers nearby are too happy....But the bees love it. ;)

Butterflies and yellow finches also... :)

Wish we had some here. This year's honey crop is practically non-existent.
Yeah, I think that will be true for many this year. Too much rain, etc.

I sent out a warning flag yesterday up in the main beekeeping forum warning beekeepers to start paying attention to honey stores. The bees are using way too much stored honey for this time of year, and things will no doubt get worse as we head into July and August, being traditional dearth periods.
