The bee famine continues
The bees are doing fine due to the succession of trees flowering in the Alice Springs local area.
They are just not making an appearance in the garden! except to get water. I have been looking closely at the flowering tree succession this year and it goes like this
River red gum (Oct-Nov) (lemon scented gum also in town)
Coolibah (Nov - Dec)
Ghost gum (dec to Jan?)
there are of course more trees flowering but these are the common ones and produce a lot of nectar.
