Bees Out And About
I meant to post this weeks ago when I first took the pictures, but obviously that didn’t work out. The bees have een out more and more with the increase in sunny days. Its a balmy 48 degrees out right now, and the crocus have all opened up. We have a couple of rhodi’s in bloom, and the camellias at the top of the hill are in bloom as well. a Pea that escaped being collected last year has sprouted up weeks early, and dozens of carrots from last years crop have sprouted. We even have carrots in the lawn. Dandelions are blooming everywhere, and the honey suckle and clematis are about to burst. Bumblebees of all colors and sizes have been seen flying about on the sunniest of days, and birds are finally starting to return. Oh and there’s lots of heather blooming around the neighborhood. I’m supposed to be feeding the bees, according to the president of my bee association, but I think that with three boxes of stores to work with, and lots of flowers in the area, my girls should be fine.
Here are some pictures!
Theres a little bee collecting pollen!
That’s all I have for now. I’m looking forward to finally being able to move things around later in the spring. I’m going to have to ask my cousin to start modifying the boxes pretty soon though. I really should get on that…
