It’s not always a sunny day in summer, is it? I decided I needed to trudge out into the melting snow drifts and capture the farm in the winter, edging into spring. Next week is going back to cold, but this week of 40’s and 50’s is doing wonders for my mood and I know that with a few fits and false starts we will get to springtime.
I was out to visit the bees today, and it is not looking good. One of our three remaining colonies is buzzing about and looks healthy. The other two are silent and still. There is always hope that they are still in cluster and just too sleepy to come out, but I think we’ll have another year of investing in new bees.
