Spring 09

The daffodils have opened and the chill has gone from the air so it is no surprise to see our landing boards full of bees laden with pollen hurrying into the hive to get that valuable protein back to the newborns. This activity suggests to me that all is well inside the hive for this time of year.
We will need to wait till it warms up a bit more to get inside the hive and have a good look around but with the large amount of pollen I saw this morning I can assume that there is a hungry brood and therefore a good laying queen inside the hive.
This is all good news and means that this hive has survived another winter.
