Desert Marigold... Just starting up (2 weeks or more early) they will soon be everywhere along with Golden Crownbeard and Brittlebush turning the hillsides yellow.

Finally!  2/15/17   66061  I observed my bees bringing in a grayish green or brown pollen today.  I am not too sure what the source is.  It's a little too early for red maples. The silver maples are definitely blooming up in the tree tops.  So, the weeping willows should be too.

Fellow beekeeper in my community reported henbit in bloom on 2/10/17.  66061
Maybe I should rake leaves so my bees can find the hen bit!

According to this site https://www.pollen.com/forecast/current/pollen/66051  you should have Juniper and Elm pollen.  I don't know if your bees know this or not.
