We actually saw some sun yesterday and the bees loved it. Its a lot of fun to watch them come in with dandy lion pollen during the spring. Like little bits of sunshine.
We are still keeping our fingers crossed for honey this year! I am managing a hive for a friend a few miles away (they want to have bees, and support the beleaguered little pollinators, but don’t want to actually ‘work the bees’) and the package went in on the 21st. They are doing well too.
