My bees are alive!

It was warm today! Ok so not 'shorts and tee shirt' warm but certainly warm enough for me to take a very quick look in the top of my hives at home, without worrying about chilling the cluster.

And I found bees buzzing at the top of both! Remarkable! It's been so cold for so long you really just have to wonder and marvel at their resilience and hardiness! Still I suppose 65 million years of evolution has to count for something!

  1. I couldn't make it home in time after work to see them flying, but I could tell by some of the dead bees on the landing board, and on the snow covered ground (that weren't there the day before) that they were alive and cleaning out the bees that didn't survive the last two weeks.

    I think the end of winter is finally in sight.
