The summer nectar flow began in the second week of June and everything seems to have bloomed at once! Clover, lime trees, blackberry, thistles, knapweed, chestnut and numerous other sources for the bees to forage on. Unfortunately we have had very little rain so the flowers are drying up and not much nectar has been produced. This means the summer flow will probably finish early, possibly even in the next couple of weeks.
