My name is Dr Margriet Dogterom and am the founder and owner of Beediverse. I write this blog for all who love bees and who want to learn more about these wonderful creatures.
Spring here in Vancouver, BC, Canada was relatively warm in mid April. A lot of lot of flowers budded and bloomed. Now, after about 2 weeks of chilling temperatures- with patches of sunshine, we are now in a warming trend. My apple blossoms are finally coming out. This particular apple tree is right next to the house. Blossoms are fully open near the house. Flowers away from the house are still in bud. I will be checking on temperatures, inside and outside the yurt.
