What more can I say? After sub-zero temperatures, constant snow, and all around a miserable winter, today is a beauty. Just warm enough in the sun for my bees to get out and about. It looks like the two hives in my backyard made it through, though the struggle is hardly over yet. Although I left them a lot of honey, they’ll go through it quickly now as they raise their young bees, even before nectar and pollen are available. Go girls, go!
My hives are a bit wonky. Looks like I’ll have some carpentry to do. The bees have made their own entrance out of a corner that has pulled away. Ah well. A little extra ventilation.
