We have a loss at our house. This bee hive (photo from last year)which was active a month or so ago is now empty. Who knows what happened. The queen might have died and the bees flew away to die. So now we are down to one hive. I had told hubby the other day I saw no action from that hive, just a few stragglers. So, yesterday being a beautiful day we opened it up, no bees, but something very beneficial....lots of honey! We never robbed them last fall as we had too much going on, and it helped them to survive this past crazy winter. Hubby got on the phone and ordered two more 60 pound bees, they should be along in the next week or so.
A sad loss for us, but on a brighter note....Happy Spring!!!
Now I need to get back outside to
1. burn the garden
2. plant some more roses
3. work in the greenhouse
4. buy more plants
5 -101 and the list goes on!!!
Looks like a busy weekend here!!!
