What a gorgeous day for the one of the last few days of March. We've had our share of snow the past few weeks and the girls have been pouting inside the hives. But they were sure out and about today as the temps warmed up to near 70 degrees.
I put some pictures up on the website. Check them out!
All six hives were really buzzing with activity today. The Colony Collapse Disorder all over the news lately has really made us anxious as we check the hives each weekend, and we are always thrilled to either see them flying about on nice days, or hear them in their hives on colder ones. Today it was a joy to see so much activity.
We sliced up about 6 oranges and put them around the hives so the girls will find some food while it's so warm and so few flowers are blooming. They will hopefully show us their appreciation by making lots of honey for us this year.
Be sure to check out the pictures of our girls. They are so darn cute you can't help but to love them!
