We just got home from church. It’s been quite the warm spell, and I took a peek out the back window and…
… the girls are flying. 🙂
Of course, in the 15 minutes it took me to run inside to grab the camera and get back out, the sun had gone down enough that they went back in, but I saw activity at both hives. Hive 2, the combined hive from fall, is big. Hive 1 is less so, but it was shaded by Hive 2. Could be that they were on the way in before I got home.
I’ve been worried about them since hearing from a friend about his bees. He checked yesterday, and was down a hive. Starvation most likely with, sadly, honey only a few cells away. How depressing to be so close to life and unable to break cluster for the cold. Poor things.
