Plenty of Kowhai out and i saw a huge Liquidamber with buds just about to burst. Strange as it is usually 2-3 weeks behind the one in my Avatar. So now it's 1-2 weeks ahead.

No Kowhai flowering here yet. You are way ahead of us

Yes. Found it in Practical Beekeeping in NZ. New edition.

Also now flowering Tree Lucerne. Pollen and Nectar

I went out at lunchtime (sunny) and lots of Tree lucerne and watched the bees for ten or fifteen minutes. 95% went in the back of the flower and had nothing in the pollen baskets. Just a few went for the front of the flower, and these had bright orange pollen pollen baskets. Opening the flowers they looked at the anthers looked orange to me.
